MapText, Inc. of US has announced the release of SmartLabel 1.0, a long-awaited low-cost text placement engine that seamlessly integrates with MapInfo Professional, MapInfo’s GIS. The product, which is designed to provide high-cartographic-quality label placement, will be demonstrated at MapInfo’s MapWorld 2005 User Conference in Miami, FL, April 6-8, 2005.
MapText has selected important capabilities of its flagship high-end multi-GIS text placement product, Label-EZ, and created SmartLabel, an easy to install and fully integrated software package that MapInfo users can use to display or print high-quality maps.
SmartLabel has two modes of operation, one, dynamic and two, static labeling. Labeling is flexible and custom parameters are configurable through an informative and easy-to-use graphical user interface. The selectable placement capabilities are illustrated by descriptive pictograms to facilitate instant understanding.
