Okay, I now know what you mean by knowing the corner. Here is what I notice: you have points along the path as follows: 2,5 2,6 2,7 2,8 2,9 3,9 4,9. If you treat these as ordered data points, then 2,8 (as you say) is the midpoint. What if you had as originally, 2,4 2,5 2,6 2,7 2,8 2,9 3,9 4,9. If you treat these as ordered data points, a midpoint would fall between 2,7 and 2,8. What would you consider to be the midpoint in this case?
