    centre weight is the average of the whole image

    spot is just the focus area

    Read this.

    And while you are at it, read other tutorials too.

    Center weighted metering does not take average of whole image. The center portion is given more weight, and the ratio of center to side is about 3:1.

    spot is not necessarily always just the focus area, especially in the case of SLRs with multiple AF areas. usually the spot metering area is denoted with a small circle or square in the centre of the viewfinder.

    spot takes the reading just from this small area, thus can be useful for more precise exposure.
