The Jumbo Kingdom is an important member of Melco's Leisure & Entertainment unit.Centred on the Jumbo and Tai Pak Floating Restaurants in Aberdeen Harbour, it is an internationally renowned tourist attraction. (source)

What does "centered on" mean? I have trouble understanding the underlined part.

    Literally, the word means "being or placed in the center." Whether this is true in the case of the location of the Jumbo Kingdom, I don't know; it may merely be an approximation of its location.
