I don't need the square to actually be centered about the central point. So it should be allowed to move around, as long as it still contains the central point.

Furthermore, unless I'm misunderstanding your suggestion, I don't see how that would work for my drawing here: http://www.makeitsha...om/drawing/8753 The minimum distance point from the red center would be the black point furthest to the right - it is closest to the center in the Y direction, and using that distance would make the square too small. I also assume you don't mean the Euclidian distance, as that would make the square too big. Am I misunderstanding?

EDIT: Hmm I think for the fixed-center case, you can split up the points into 4 regions delineated by the 2 diagonals of the square. So all points in the "top" and "bottom" regions, you consider their "grow distance" to be the Y distance to the center, and for the "left" and "right" region you consider it the X distance. Then, you can find the point with the minimum "grow distance" and use that as your half-width.

Still thinking about the movable case..perhaps applying this iteratively would work...

Thanks for taking the time to reply!
