How to Label Your Map Points

Clarify and Differentiate Locations with Map Labels

It can get confusing plotting pins on a map – especially if you have hundreds or thousands of data points to plot. That is where map labels can help. They allow you to quickly organize and differentiate between your locations, so you can create stunning map presentations that you can print out.

Let’s take an example. Say you are in real estate and you need an easy, strategic way to show houses to agents and clients. Once you have your houses mapped out, you can use the Labels feature to identify the houses and provide detailed information like listing price, square footage, and home features. Map labels enable you to choose what information you would like to appear in the label, and any column information from your spreadsheet can be displayed.

Show your labels now and make your map Excel data more understandable!
