ArcEQuIS Table Labels

The ArcEQuIS add in for ArcGIS Pro includes the ability to run reports that will display a crosstab table. This allows users to display tables of analytical data from an EQuIS Database on their maps in ArcGIS Pro.

 

Prerequisites

 

1.In EQuIS Professional, publish the ArcEQuIS Table Label Report (EarthSoft.Reports.Library.627608.dll) to the database.

2.In EQuIS Professional or EQuIS Enterprise, create and save a user report from the ArcEQuIS Table Label Report to specify the parameter selections used to generate the Spider Diagrams.

 

Creating a Spider Diagram

 

Open ArcGIS Pro to a new or existing Map project and connect to an EQuIS Enterprise Site. Add location or other layers using EQuIS Data, if desired.

 

Add Spider Diagrams as follows:

 

1.Click the Add Data button (under ArcEQuIS Tab).

2.Navigate to the correct Facility.

3.Select a published ArcEQuIS Table Label Report. Any reports that will display a crosstab table will have the following icon table_label_icon.

4.Add the report to the map by selecting “Add layer”->As Snapshot.

5.The tables will be plotted as shown below.

6.Optimize the appearance of the Table Labels.

 

Depending on zoom level, site distance, table size, etc., initial table label display in ArcGIS Pro may not be optimal.

 

To alter the appearance and placement of the labels:

 

Zoom in to the appropriate extents.

 

Adjust label display using ArcGIS labeling functionality, for example, the settings below may be useful.

 

a.Alter the font size of the text within the label. (ArcGIS Pro)

b.Alter label placement (ArcGIS Pro)

c.Enable the "Never remove (place overlapping)". (ArcGIS Pro)

Notes about Table Label-Based Spider Diagrams

 

Tables are saved as text in the layer’s attribute table. It is then displayed on the map using the Labeling functionality built into ArcGIS Pro.

 Formatting (i.e. bold, italic, underline, font color) defined in the crosstab configuration will be plotted in the text Labels. See this ArcGIS documentation for more information on supported formatting.

 

Limitations    

 

Plotting as Link will display the labels slowly because of the live connection.

The refresh may be delayed following edits to the layer contents or display.

The Table Label icon table_label_icon will not appear until the second time the report is run in ArcGIS.

The published crosstab report may only be plotted if the Separate Tables By option of the crosstab configuration is SYS_LOC_CODE.

The graphic text annotations use extended characters to plot the tables; the tables will only display correctly when using a monospaced font (i.e. Courier New).

Only text formatting supported by ArcGIS is supported (e.g. you cannot set the background color of individual cells in the table).

There is a limit to the size of crosstab the built-in labeling functionality will display.
