"Where is the geographic center of Chile?"

Let me guess.....you answered somewhere around Santiago - maybe a bit north of that ....right?
Actually, that would be absolutely wrong!
We often forget that Chile has a claim to part of Antartica. That means that the geographic center is actually much further south ... South of Punta Arenas near the Strait of Magellan. It's just a bit north of Fuerte Bulnes and inland of Puerto Hambre.
If these places aren't ringing any bells take a look here:
As this point is marked, we stopped at it today on the way back from Fuerte Bulnes.
