Group Labels by address
I was hoping to get some tips on making effective labels with geocoded data.
I've been requested to make a map of hydro meters and to display meter #s as labels. The meters were geocoded and some addresses contain many meters. Is it possible to group labels (meter#) by address and display all meters per address in a group label? I was thinking of a leader line with brackets containing all the meter #s at each address. I was hoping to limit the amount of manual moving of anno. It's a small scale map 1:65,000 and some areas are very cramped. Any other suggestions would be great.
Mapping Center Answer:
There is no easy way to solve this problem--essentially whenever you've got multiple dwelling units with the same street address you get a stack of points. We've written a couple of blog entries that address the generic form of this problem--hopefully these will help you find a solution.
