Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Labeling features, part of Learning ArcGIS.
…Almost all maps rely on clearly…identifying the depicted features through labeling.…We've seen how we can use the Identify tool to…click on each feature and find out addition information about it.…But that can be a pretty tedious way to explore the map.…Especially since the Identify window only displays…information for one feature at a time.…Luckily for us, we have an entire database…of information behind each feature on our map.…And labeling becomes a simple task of deciding which fields from the…attribute table, we want to see printed right on the map itself.…So let's go ahead and start labeling our Washington Dairy Farm map.…
First, I'm going to turn off the Roads and Cities…layers to clean up the display a little bit.…Then, I'm going to click on the counties.…I'll right click on it, and come down to, Label Features.…I'll turn that on, and we'll see that we get…labels indicating the name of each county in Washington state.…Now this comes in with a default symbology.…I'm going to go ahead and change this, by double-clicking…
