MapText’s Releases New Version of High-Quality Dynamic Text Placement Software for GeoMedia WebMap

October 3, 2006 -- MapText, Inc. has released Label-Web v.2.0, the latest version of the Company’s high-quality text placement engine that labels web-based maps on the fly in Intergraph’s GeoMedia WebMap environment.

Right from its inception in 2005, Label-Web has generated intense interest among organizations who want to create high-quality web mapping applications. Such organizations include the City of San Jose (Calif.), the City of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Energy (both Denmark), and many others.

Label-Web version 2.0 expands on the capabilities provided in previous versions in a number of ways. New commands and capabilities are available that add even more flexibility to the labeling of maps and charts. The labeling engine has been updated with performance enhancements to ensure that the dynamic placement of label text occurs as smoothly and quickly as possible. Finally, new tools have been added to simplify the process of creating and maintaining Label Rule Files and to aid in the upgrading of existing installations.

With Label-Web, users can have aesthetic maps of the highest cartographic quality in a dynamic on-the-fly manner. The software places text in accordance with cartographic rules and conventions, avoids text-to-text and text-to-feature overlap (unless expressly allowed), and ensures unambiguous text-to-feature association. Most importantly, it achieves aesthetic, high-quality label placement so as to enhance rapid visual comprehension, while maintaining high performance suitable for interactive display over the Internet.

Label-Web can be easily integrated into a server-side script by adding a few lines of code to include the Label-Web application and initiate the text placement.
