Editorial Reviews
ESRI(R) Maplex for ArcGIS(TM) an extension to the suite of integrated applications in the ArcGIS(TM) Desktop products-- ArcInfo(TM), ArcEditor(TM), and ArcView(R) is used to design and create publication-quality cartographic labels for maps. Maplex for ArcGIS lets you control how labels should be placed relative to features; how labels may be modified or reduced to allow more placements when the available space is constrained; and how to resolve conflicts between labels for a given place. The labels you create using Maplex for ArcGIS can be converted to annotation and shared and edited in a geodatabase.
Using Maplex for ArcGIS shows you how to put Maplex for ArcGIS to work immediately labeling your spatial data. Whether you are just beginning to use labels in your geographic information system (GIS), or you are a power user, this book makes it easy to identify a task you need to perform-from basic to advanced-and shows you how to get it done.
You will learn how to:
Label points, lines, and polygons with new placement options.
Specify the offset, alignment, and word or character spacing of labels.
Control how and when labels are stacked, reduced in size, or abbreviated.
Weight feature and label classes so more important features are labeled.
Provide a buffer zone around important labels to improve legibility.
Remove redundant labels and place labels as background text.
Convert labels to annotation in a map document or in a geodatabase.
Begin by following the quick-start tutorial to get an overview of what you can do with Maplex for ArcGIS, and refine the labeling of a map. If you prefer, jump right in and experiment on your own. When you have questions, you will find concise, step-by-step answers inside, fully illustrated, to help you complete a task.
