GMLABVPOS: Stata module providing egen function for label positioning
_gmlabvpos is an attempt to automatically generate a variable for the clockpositions of marker labels in scatterplots. That is, the command generates a variable which can be filled into the scatter option mlabvpos(). Note that the program does not attempt to prevent marker labels from overploting, which is quite likely in dataset with many observations. In such situations you might be better off in simply make randomized clock positions. The general idea behind _gmlabvpos is to pull the marker label away from the data-region. For example, marker symbols in the lower left edge of the data region are labeled at clock-position 7 or 8, and marker symbols in the upper right edge of the data region are labeled at clock-position 1 or 2, etc.
