Mean Center (Spatial Statistics) tool xcoord and ycoord

Hi,

I am using the Mean Center (Spatial Statistics) tool to calculate the mean center point for a group of seabed samples taken at different sample stations. The tool is working okay but I have found that the output xcoord and ycoord values are not always the same as when the x and y coord of the new point is calculated using the Add XY Coordinates tool - there is often a difference of several meters. The data and data frame are both set to WGS84 UTM Zone 31N and I don't understand why there is this difference. The calculated xcoord and ycoord from the Mean Center tool doesn't seem to be correct for the new point features. Can anyone explain?

Thanks,
Stephen
