I need to find the center coordinate of the state of Idaho. I have a list of coordinates of the east and west border of the state. The coordinates are:

west = {{0, 0}, {0.25, 0}, {0.5, 0}, {0.75, 0}, {1.0, 0}, {1.25, 1/16}, {1.5, -1/8}, {1.75, 0}, {2.0, 1/8}, {2.25, 1/4}, {2.75, 3/16}, {3.0, 1/16}, {3.25, 0}, {3.5, 0}, {3.75, 0}, {4.0, 0}, {4.25, 0}, {4.5, 0}};
east = {{0, 3}, {0.25, 3}, {0.5, 3}, {0.75, 3}, {1.0, 3}, {1.25, 3}, {1.5, 3}, {1.75, 11/4}, {2.0, 7/4}, {2.25, 13/8}, {2.75, 5/4}, {3.0, 21/16}, {3.25, 9/8}, {3.5, 7/8}, {3.75, 11/16}, {4.0, 1/2}, {4.25, 1/2}, {4.5, 1/2}};

I don't really have an idea how I use Mathematica to find the area with these coordinates and then the center of that area. Any help is appreciated.
