The Feature Types/Labels/Elevations tab provides the ability to specify layer Labeling, 3D elevation and height properties of the vector feature and Feature Types that are used to style the layer.
Don't Use an Attribute Value for Name — this option specifies that the original or edited display label associated with a feature should be used for display and not a label based on an attribute value or custom string
Use Selected Attribute Value for Name — specifies that the value of the selected attribute will be used as the display label for the feature. If the feature already had a label and the Keep Original Label if Non-Empty option is checked, the original label will be used rather than the attribute value.
Use Multiple Attributes for Name — allows the user to choose one or more attributes to combine to create the display label, as well as provide custom prefix, suffix, and separator strings. If the feature already had a label and the Keep Original Label if Non-Empty option is checked, the original label will be used rather than the attribute value.
Custom Formatting String for Name — allows the user to provide
a custom formatted string that can contain any free-form text and
attribute values embedded as %ATTR_NAME%. The name of any feature
attribute can be used as ATTR_NAME or special attributes, like <Feature
Name>, <Feature Desc>, <Feature Layer Name>, etc.
For Example: to create a display label from the original feature label, the layer name, and an attribute named FCODE, you could use the following: %<Feature Name>% - Layer Name: %<Feature Layer Name>% - Feature Code: %FCODE%. If the feature already had a label and the Keep Original Label if Non-Empty option is checked, the original label will be used rather than the attribute value.
Keep Original/ Edited Label if Non-Empty — When this option is checked the above settings to derive a label will only apply to features with out a label.
Display Labels for Layer if Any Shown — Deselecting this option will turn off labeling of the layer. With this option checked the labeling will default to other label settings.
Label/ Attribute Language (Code Page) —Use this setting to convert label and attribute values from the layer's native code page or display in the user interface, and when setting new values for the label and code page.
Get 'Elevations' From Attribute Value — specify the attribute value to apply to feature to define elevation. By default, several attribute
field names (like "ELEVATION", "ELEV", "ALTITUDE",
"Z", etc.) are checked when an elevation value for the feature
is needed. This option allows the user to override this behavior and manually
select the attribute to use.
Units for Unspecified Height Values —specify units to assign to unspecified elevation values for the layer, such as per-vertex elevation values.
Get 'Heights' from Attribute Value — allows you to specify the attribute used to designate height values for point features. The drop-down list will include available attributes, plus an entry for <Default>. If <Default> is chosen, then Global Mapper, when rendering a 3D point symbol, will scan the attributes for one of a small set of candidate attribute names that could work (e.g. "HEIGHT", "DEPTH", "HGT", "HEIGHT"), and if it finds one, will use that. If <Default> is selected Global Mapper will scan the height attribute candidate list. If a specific attribute is used to designate elevation, attribute candidates will be skipped in favor of the user-specified elevation attribute.
Height Units for Unspecified Height Values — If height units aren't specified in the chosen attribute to use for elevation values, then the selection from the drop-down menu of units that will be used. The second drop-down menu will allow you to specify how the elevation units should be treated; Absolute, Relative to Ground, Clamp to Ground, Depth (selecting 'Depth' will generate the actual elevation by subtracting the height from the base of 3D vector features in the selected layer).
There are also options to select the classification
to apply to unclassified area, line, and/or point features in the layer.
