I have a few questions about labeling contours. First of all, is there a standard way to label contours? Then second, what's the best way to label contours in ArcGIS ArcView 9.2? By best, I mean, painless (not necessarily quick, but just painless) and decent looking. I know there must be a better way than using the standard labeling options because those give me labels that are literally all over the map. I have been labeling them by hand at the moment. I've attached a map that I am working on. Any suggestions would be most welcomed!
