New Jersey, USA, 5 April 2006: Belgian mapmaker Aquaterra selected MapText’s Label-EZ automated label placement product for its mapping operations, the company announced on April 5. Aquaterra selected Label-EZ – a multi-GIS text placement software – to create high-quality maps in a MapInfo environment.
They plan to use Label-EZ for creating fully finished geo-referenced map tiles at multiple scales for entire territory of Belgium and subsequently for other European countries such as Italy, France, and Germany among others. The end users of their maps are public and private organizations and agencies.
As data is updated every six months, Aquaterra needs to update the map tiles accordingly. Short processing time to generate these high-quality maps is critical. It is anticipated that the use of Label-EZ would save Aquaterra about 85 percent of their time currently spent on text placement for each update cycle, which amounts to almost four (4) months per update.
