I am creating a visual representation of which chromosome portions I inherited from each grandparent. It would be helpful to include the centromere location as part of the visual representation, like FTDNA shows in its chromosome browser.

Family Tree DNA uses Build 37 for matching but Build 36 for segment boundaries in their Chromosome browser. GEDmatch uses Build 36 for everything. See: "Human reference genome" section of ISOGG CentiMorgan page.

Family Tree DNA lists their Build 36 Centromere locations as:
