Labeling Layer and Labeling Configuration

In a first step choose the Labeling Layer and the Labeling Configuration. All layers with a Label Feature configuration will be listed in the labeling layer drop-down menu. In case you have got more than one specified search result you can choose the desired labeling configuration.

Note: Provide a better overview about layers available for userdefined labeling by configuring layer categories. See chapter List of Layer Categories for details.


Label Styles

Different label styles are available for the user, if more than one style were configured in VertiGIS GmbH - Technical Documentation Team.


Labeling Options

Choose your label style.


Available Labelfields

The user can select single or multiple fields which ought to be used for labeling (i.e. content related or field name). In addition, the user can choose to insert a Splitter as separator for multiple information content (i.e. a comma, dot, hyphen, slash or break). The field order may be changed using the context menu.

Note: The separator '\n' separates the attributes via line break so that each attribute is in a new line. Labeling features of an ArcMap relate or a WebOffice relate with the separator '\n' is not possible. In this case the separator will be ignored.


To label a feature, the user can click on the desired location (i.e. point or area of interest). A leader line with the feature details will appear. The information can now be placed anywhere in the map by simply double-clicking on the wanted location for the label.
