[GRASS-user] Central tendency with Grass

I need a tool to find spatial mean (mean center), weighted mean center, and
standard distance.
You can take a look in this article to understand what I mean (in greek): 
So, I'm looking for a tool that I'll define as input a point shapefile (or
vector map in grass) with a field for weight values(for weighted mean
center) and then, as an output, I'll get a shapefile with one point for
spatial mean, another shapefile with a point as the weighted mean center and
finally a shapefile with a polygon representing the standard distance as
circle.Thank you for the interest, Leonidas
