Hello. There is a function for R (http://bm2.genes.nig.ac.jp/RGM2/
R_current/library/maptools/man/pointLabel.html) to help with placing/
locating text labels in an optimized way so as to minimise some
measure of text overlap (or likely text overlap).  Has anyone written
or ported such a thing for Python?
