Geocode on polygon shape rather than centroid

    When an address locator is built from a polygon layer, any geocoding is done based on the polygon's centroid, rather than its actual shape.  That means that if you click the address inspector (or some other reverse geocoder) inside a polygon but closer to the centroid of a different polygon, it will return the address of that different polygon.  It would be better if it returned the address of the polygon you clicked in (or the nearest polygon to where you click outside of any features - rather than the nearest centroid).

    The address inspector gets the address of the polygon I click in

    The address inspector gets the address of the nearest polygon centroid, even though I clicked within my selected polygon
