I have been converting a few state and county park PDF maps to geospatial PDFs with Map Publisher.  One county park map I tried displayed perfectly in Acrobat reader but AI complained of three missing fonts which appear to be icon sets (bathrooms, picnic tables, shelters).  Two of the fonts were BLM and I was able to find those but the third NPSPICT1 I have not been able to find anywhere.  As a result of the missing font the exported geospatial PDF has substituted individual letters instead of icons which is disappointing.

 

From the NPSPICT1 name I guess it is a National Park Service font but I haven't found it after some web searching.  Are any of you familiar with a font of this name and how i might be able to obtain it if it is open to the public to use?  

 

Also can anyone provide insight as to why Acrobat can display this file perfectly but AI6 stumbles on it for lack of fonts?

 

Here is a URL to the county park map file: http://www.anokacoun...BUNKER-WINT.pdf

 

Thanks

Okay I found NPSPICT1 at http://www.nps.gov/h...map-symbols.cfm.  It is part of the True Type Font Symbols package.  Sorry to clutter the list with a question I could answer with some additional work.

 

Thank you National Park Service for this cartographic symbol resource and setting a great example with geospatial PDFs for all the national parks.  Now I just have to convince some local state agencies to do the same for maps they produce!
