I'm looking for a better labeling-solution for my projects. It seems to be difficult - but maybe I'm just blind?
My projects: I build printed bike-hike-books. The main scale is 1:75k and there are a city scale of 10k and a overview scale of 200k. Because I like to have a "cartographic" quality of labels placements, I touch every single label and move it to it's best position. I have to do this for every single scale so my labeling columns for 3 scales look like this ('scale 1' stands for 10k 'scale 2' for 75k and 'scale 3' for 200k):
But before I try to explain in detail, I build this simple Example-Project where you can see and test my (old) labeling solution for 3 scales: http://www.map-site.de/tmp/LabelingExample.zip
Well, it is working but:
- You need labeling columns for every scale
- You need a layer for every scale
I'm looking for a much better solution without duplicate layers and tons of columns. I count on your creative minds!
EDIT: I added this two very dense map as examples:
Every label has to be moved manually. Some of the labels are not in a quadrant.
