City of Bytom (Poland) Realizes Huge Productivity Gains by Using MapText’s Labeling Software

Plainsboro, NJ – March 26, 2009. The City of Bytom (Poland) has realized huge productivity gains by using MapText’s GeoLabel Pro text placement software for its map production workflow in ArcGIS environment.

Bytom is one of the leading municipalities in the field of LIS/GIS in Poland. The city has been the site of numerous EU-funded pilot projects in the area of spatial information and GIS technology in the past 20 years.

The city’s GIS team creates highly detailed cadastral and ownership maps for the general public and also for potential investors in need of accurate land and building records. Those maps are dense, especially in the central part of the town. In many cases it is impossible to directly place all labels for several feature layers (streets, ground class, plots, address points) inside the polygons at the typical scale of 1:500 or 1:1000. Therefore, the use of leader lines became unavoidable.

Bytom’s GIS team has been actively looking for text placement software that not only provides automatic leader placement but also very high cartographic quality in their ArcGIS environment. After rigorous evaluation, the City selected MapText’s GeoLabel Pro text placement product.

“GeoLabel Pro from MapText has provided great gains to our productivity because of its sophisticated capability for automatic placement of leaders and its excellent post-editing tools for unplaced labels. Besides their superb technology, MapText is also providing us with top-of-the-line technical support. We are also looking into other MapText products that can be used for labeling contours,” City of Bytom’s GIS Analyst, Pawel Kucharek, commented.

GeoLabel Pro shares the same powerful labeling engine as MapText’s flagship product Label-EZ. It provides users with an intuitive user interface for setting up labeling rules and styles with ease. The various placement capabilities for line, point, and area features are illustrated by descriptive pictograms.
