Add labels to the mapview

3 min Medium


The  Labeling Feature is for adding labels (text or numbers) for points or polygons on the mapview. A label displays the field value of a particular object (point/line/polygon). For example, you can add a label to each polygon to display the total population of each polygon (see the screenshot below).
