[Paraview] Centering data

For the record, Andy's method is attempting to find the center of mass (assuming uniform density).  If you just need the center of the bounds, you can go to the information panel, average the bounds in each dimension, and then do a translate transform to move that point to the origin.

Sorry, I should have specified this earlier. The data is a point
cloud. Each point has a vertex cell. The data set is far from
centered. Maybe this is the problem - there is no "area"? Here is the
data set: http://rpi.edu/~doriad/Paraview_List/data.vtp

Thanks for your help,
