Label AddOn


The Label AddOn plug-in assigns images, geometries and text based on label parameters. Labels can have up to four extra parameters.

  • Label parents: Country, Admin1, Admin2 (see also Place Finder plug-in)

  • Label type: Type

Based on the container name (case sensitive), the CWMClient plug-in updates the Value field in the plug-in with the correct value. For example, if you have selected London and you have a Label AddOn plug-in on a container named Country it receives the value of United Kingdom and if you have another Label AddOn plug-in on a container named Type It receives the value of Capital. A use case for this plug-in is whenever you want to have flags for all countries in the world in a folder and use the right flag based on the country. Another use case is having different images for different types and using the correct image based on the type.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Plugins -> Container plug-ins -> Maps_Adv
