Maps are usually dense with information, and sometimes it’s hard to fit all of the labels in the frame When this occurs, label priority and placement rules are leveraged to get the most out of the space available.
- [Instructor] Labels will often crowd into one another…and it's the job of ArcGIS Pro's labeling engine…to sort out which labels get priority placement.…There are lots of options for controlling these placements…so, let's take a look…by continuing to work on the park labels…for San Francisco.…I'll click on the parks layer in the Contents group…and then activate the LABELING tab…in the Ccntextual ribbon.…Again, I just want to double check…that the Large Parks is the current class…that we're working on,…and then focus our attention on the Label Placement section.…Here we have different options…for choosing how our labels get placed within the polygons.…
I'll go ahead and click on the Basic Polygon…and after the map redraws,…you'll notice that these labels…have shifted position slightly.…Now we can see that Presidio has an arched appearance to it…and some of these other labels are now at an angle,…not perfectly horizontal.…The next option is Boundry Polygon,…let's go ahead and click on that one.…This placement option will align the label…
