hi, is there a good resource out there that shows standardized symbologies for certain features?

I guess the proper question would be "is there an agreed upon list of standard symbologies?"

Thanks,
BWM

For some types of features, yes (water = blue, forest = green), for others, no.

Any specific features you're looking for?

It depends on the sort of map you make: topo, street map, etc.
I have a few excellent street map templates that are used widely now.

For symbols/icons for trail maps, the US National Park set is popular in the states.
