GIS Symbols for Community Gardens and Playgrounds
Posted 22 May 2012 - 02:06 PM
I have been a short term lurker and general appreciator of all the great maps and discussion that goes on here. Thanks for being so informative!
I have been inspired to create my first topic because I am having difficulty finding symbols to represent Community Gardens and Playgrounds in ArcMap. Ideally, I would like them in a State Parks/National Parks style, as I have been using that style for Parking, Trails, Visitor Centers, Restrooms, etc. I was able to use ESRI font sets to work with those symbols.
Does anyone know any places I could download these symbols? Any tips or advice are appreciated.

We use a lot of those universal symbols at the Forest Service. I have one for playgrounds, but not for any type of garden. If you have an illustration program like Illustrator, you can design your own symbol, save it as an EMF, and create a custom picture marker symbol in ArcMap.
Thanks for the response. I should mention that I have had quite a bit of success using Forest Service symbols. I used to use Illustrator, but do not have access to it at this time. It has been a bit of a relearning ArcMap process as I used to rely heavily on Ai for my mapping needs.
