Gene's 'geometric center' sounded right. Also, you could consider 'exact
center'.

...I am trying to find a simple way to refer to the location exactly center
of an area, looking below:

------------------------------- outside defining edge of solid area

===================== this is the center of the solid area (or plane, or
whatever)

-------------------------------- outside defining edge of solid area

Currently we are using the word 'midpoint' but this is defined as "A
point equidistant from the ends of a line or the extremities of a
figure" - since this is not strictly true, how would you define this?

"halfway between"

"center of the plane"...
