Introducing the Maplex Label Engine tutorial
A good way to learn how to use the Maplex Label Engine is to work through the process of labeling a map. This tutorial introduces you to some labeling techniques in the context of mapping land parcels and streets.
In this tutorial, you will use the Maplex Label Engine to do the following:
- Improve labels for parcel features by stacking and reducing the size of the labels.
- Place labels for parcel boundary features by aligning them to their features and reducing their size.
- Improve label placement for street features by applying a labeling style and an abbreviation dictionary.
The data for the Maplex Label Engine tutorial is located in the <install drive>:\ArcGIS\ArcTutor\Maplex folder when you install the ArcGIS Tutorial Data.
