If we are building things, I would assume it means 'take a measure from the center to the edge'

It could also mean 'the size of the center'

In mathematics the 'measure of center' is the means how to determinate the center most of a data set.

(elementary statistics) The four measures of center are mean, median, mode, and mid-range

Mean -- The mean is what you know as the average. It is calculated by taking all of the values in a set and dividing them by the total number of values in that set.

Median -- The median is the number that is in the middle of a data set that is organized from lowest to highest or from highest to lowest.

Mode - The mode is the number that repeats most often in a data set.

Midrange - The midrange is calculated by adding the highest and lowest values of a data set together, and dividing the sum by 2.
