Labeling using "One_label_per_part" is not recognized by multipart point data

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When using a label renderer in ArcIMS, the howmanylabels attribute value "one_label_per_part" is not recognized when using multipart point data. Only the first point in a multipoint shape is labeled.


The ArcIMS spatial server cannot label all parts (points) of a multipart point.


A number of potential workarounds exist:

  • Convert the original multipart point data into individual points.
  • Create a multipart line or polygon dataset from the multipart point data; for example, use the extent of individual features, thus creating rectangle polygons. Then use the new multipart line or polygon dataset to label the original layer.
  • Use ArcMap Server.
