I just tested with census_wake2000 from the NC demo dataset and can
confirm the issue.
The problem seems to be with the type 'area' which is not recognised
somewhere along the process. Adding the option 'centroid' to the 'type'
parameter and using that option makes it create the expected labels.
Could you file a bug about this ?
I'm not sure which would be the better solution:
- Leave the options as is and change the code so that 'area' is remapped
I'm picking this bug up. I'll continue working on this missing feature. I never got around to implementing it, but now that I see people are using and wanting this feature I'm more than happy to actually work on it!
