I was able to produce the Thematic Map for Agricultural Production for the various boundaries. How can I display the production value associated with each polygon as a label (to make it look like the the pic below)

If you're using ArcMap, right click on the layer in your TOC > Properties > Labels > Label features in this layer (checkbox at top) > select your output attribute as the Label Field.

If you're using QGIS, right click the layer in your TOC > Properties > Labels > Show labels for this layer (dropdown on top) > Label with your output attribute.

  • thank you, I am using Mapinfo but was able to find a way to do it

I have been able to do this with a workaround, by setting the labels on the original table.

So I have the original table SchoolSite, from which I have created the thematic map Ind. Value with TYPE. I have hidden the SchoolSite table, but turned on the labels (indicated by red arrow).
