Clearer text labelling - suggestions?
I am looking for some advice and/or suggestions as to how I might be able to export clearer text labels when exporting rasterised maps. A bit of background information...
The contract I'm currently working on must adhere to certain standards and one of those standards states that text labels must be black (RGB(0,0,0)). However, these obviously do not show up well when overlaid against a dark background. Has anyone found a way to 'outline' text or produce a white halo around text items?
This is quite a problem as I'm working on a very large map with several thousand place names (the place names imported from a point Shapefile with the place names appearing as a known attribute/value pair at a given location). The exported maps are huge thus manual hand-editing of labels is not an option.
Thanks for your time.
