I am creating a map with about 50 points and want to label the points numerically (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4...) and provide a table with the corresponding point numbers in order with additional columns with info related to each point.
My problem is I want the point numbering on the map to be grouped or organized so that the numbers are not randomly scattered all over the map (i.e. point 1 is near to point 2 etc) to assist in visual interpretation. My concern is if I just add a attribute field and asign numbers, on the map it will appear random.
Any thoughts on how to address this using ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1?
