labeling roadway route concurrencies?

Question asked by desertsp on Apr 13, 2017

Seeking advice on labeling (or annotating) roadway route concurrencies, WITHOUT using Roads and Highways (I have access to an Advanced license for ArcMap10.1, soon 10.4).

 

Here is what I want to achieve. Note how the labels for (93/1/3) and (93/1) are placed close together rather than being spread out along the line.

I have two pre-existing choices for accessing the geometry.

 

this structure:

FID

Route

1

IH-93

2

USH-1

3

CTH-3

 

 

or this:

 

FID

Route1

Route2

Route3

1

IH-93

USH-1

 

2

IH-93

USH-1

CTH-3

3

IH-93

USH-1

 

 

The former uses as a single feature per route; features overlap wherever routes become concurrent. In the later, the concurrencies have already been identified and merged into a single feature with each route being identified in the attribute table.

 

Any advice on producing labels or annotation in this situation?
