How do I label a point shape with its name?

A number of our apps provide the Auto Label function.

Please tap the Topic View icon (the second icon from the right side) then select the Point Topic of interest.

Now tap the Topic Menu icon (the second icon from the left side) then select the Auto Label function and use it to label all the points on the selected Topic layer with the Topic Name and Feature ID.

If you have Attributes defined for the selected Point Topic, you could select those as well for labeling the points.

If you add another Attribute later, then please first delete the existing labels then redo the Auto Label.

If you add a new Feature to the same Topic layer, then please execute the Auto Label again to update the labels.

I am bringing in shape files with a few attributes and can’t for the life of me figure out how to display the attribute as a label.

The shapes in Shapefiles are imported as Features grouped under Feature Topics. The Auto Label function will let you label all the Features in a Feature Topic.

First, tap the Topic View icon to turn on Topic View and select the Topic you wish to label.  On iCMTGIS II, Topic View is the next to the last icon from the top right side. On iGPSGIS II, Topic View is the last icon at the top.

This makes that Topic active.

Then tap on the Topic Menu icon and select Auto Label. Select the Attributes of interest. On iCMTGIS II, Topic Menu is the second icon from the left side. On iGPSGIS II,tap Main Menu then, Topic then select Auto Label.

Set the font size and color then tap OK.

You may tap on a displayed label and move it around in Map View.
