Like layers, the visibility of labels can be controlled with respect to the scale that the map is being viewed at. Turning labels off at larger scales increases the space available for higher priority labels and features.
- [Narrator] We've seen that the visibility…of layers in the map can be controlled based…on the scale that it's being viewed at.…We can apply the same technique to adjust the labels,…so that the map features will be visible…but they won't be labeled until the map is zoomed…to an appropriate scale.…I want to apply this technique to our smaller parks.…Let's go ahead and click on the parks layer…in the contents pane.…And then activate the labeling tab,…on the ribbon.…Then, we'll change the target labeling class…from large parks to small parks.…And then focus our attention…on the visibility range group.…Right now, the small parks…are being labeled at all scales.…
I want to change that so that we can only see…the small park labels when we get in…past a zoom scale of one to 60,000.…I'll type in one, colon, 60,000 here.…The map will re draw,…and you'll notice that the labels…for the small parks have disappeared.…That's because I'm currently viewing the map…at a scale of one to 107,000.…Let's go ahead and start zooming in.…
