When trying to accomplish the same thing in the past I created rules based on the length of street segments to pare down the amount of labels displayed (eg only display labels on street segments .5 mile or longer). To do this use the label expression functionality. You can also create label priority and weighting constraints. See: ...
There are no dynamic labeling engines that can place all labels perfectly. Maplex does a great job but it should only be considered the first step for label placements especially when the resulting product is meant for print. If your scale is "set in stone", you might want to use feature linked annotations to manually place some labels but still maintain a ...
With ArcGIS Maplex Label Engine Switch on the View Unplaced Labels but clicking the icon on the toolbar. Displays the labels that could not be placed on the map http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00s800000054000000 There maybe a more settings that are causing the labels not to be placed. See ...
I do smomthing like this: canvas = qgis.utils.iface.mapCanvas() fullext = canvas.mapRenderer().fullExtent() f = 64 sx = fullext.xMinimum() sy = fullext.yMinimum() w = fullext.width()/f h = fullext.height()/f fileGrid = open("grid.txt","w") for i in xrange(f): for j in xrange(f): rec = QgsRectangle(sx+i*w,sy+j*h,sx+(i+1)*w,sy+(j+1)*h) s ...
What you are looking for is at the LAYER level. It's a processing directive called LABEL_NO_CLIP. This make sure that the polygon is not clipped between tile so the label doesn't repeat. LAYER NAME ... PROCESSING "LABEL_NO_CLIP=True" ... CLASS ... LABEL ALIGN center FONT "ubuntu" TYPE TRUETYPE SIZE 15 POSITION ...
i think it was a problem in some geometries so i execute this tools : Repair Geometry (Data Management) and now the labels appear nicely link : http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00170000003v000000
Just figured this one out thanks to a modification of an older post by dakcarto. Basically the python would need to look like this (replace everything in bold): palyr = QgsPalLayerSettings() palyr.readFromLayer(My Vector Layer) palyr.enabled = True palyr.fieldName = 'My Attribute Field Name' palyr.placement= QgsPalLayerSettings.OverPoint ...
You need to set the Coordinate X and Y binding to enable the Alignment binding.
Check the case of the field name, Postgres treats 'name' and 'NAME' as totally different fields, if the field is not found, the style will not show and there will be an error in your GeoServer log file
I was trying to figure this out for a few hours, and then realised I had label lock turned on!!!
