labeling cluster points
Hi Esri Inc,
I'm trying to label points which are clustered at a scale of around 1:200 000 and it is very difficult to label based on the clustering and the length of the name. Each point has to be displayed and labeled so is there a way apart from manually doing this (i.e., converting labels to annotation) to label these clusters points? I have attached a screenshot of the problem at hand.
Mapping Center Answer:
Here are some blog entries we wrote about dispersing clustered point symbols - one solution uses Maplex and two use the Disperse Markers tool. If you use the Disperse Markers tool, then the labels will be placed relative to the newly positioned points.
- Displaying Coincident Points - this uses Maplex
- How to scatter stacked or clustered marker symbols for point features - this uses the Disperse Markers tool
- Using the Disperse Markers tool to show community amenities - this uses the Disperse Markers tool
