Map labeling never looked so good – embedding GeoLabel Pro into GeoMedia
June 6th, 2012 by Susan Smith
Intergraph announces it has signed an OEM agreement with MapText, Inc., the label-placement solutions provider for local, state and national government mapping agencies worldwide. MapText’s GeoLabel Pro product will be fully embedded into the Intergraph GeoMedia Desktop product line, providing better overall labeling capabilities within the product suite. With this product, users can define rules for the placement, content and style of feature-based generated labels that are both dynamic and static.
The embedding of GeoLabel Pro into GeoMedia will allow users to make their maps appear more professional with key data inclusion.
According to the press release, GeoLabel Pro allows for the most optimized placement of labels with obstacle avoidance across all feature layers, as well as the dynamic text placement mode that provides optimal on-screen viewing. Regarding point features, the software offers nine selectable text positions and stacking for allowing or disallowing labels to cross lines. It also offers a high-placement percentage for labeling, which minimizes the need for post editing.
