Style and Label a Linear Feature
 
 
 

Specify the visual appearance of lines in a map. You can include composite lines to show a solid background with a dashed or solid midline. You can add intelligently placed labels that follow the linear path, or you can use multi-line labels that appear next to the lines.

Use Data Connect to add the feature data to the map

Use the Style Editor to specify the zoom level at which the style appears

Create an expression for the Thematic Rules field in the Style Editor. The expression determines which lines appear in the display map at the scale range you chose

Specify the color, thickness, and pattern for the linear feature

Build a style with several components and then style each component, for example, to show a dividing line for roads

Use the Advanced Placement option to add labels that follow the path of the line. These labels stitch together line segment labels and shrink to fit the line size. Note: Choose either Advanced Placement or Multi-line Labeling.

Use the Multi-Line Labeling option to add labels that place text on multiple lines. Note: Choose either Advanced Placement or Multi-line Labeling.
