The Design and Production of Map Symbol Database Based on ArcGIS
Map symbol is the basis of digital cartography, and ArcGIS is the best suited digital cartography GIS software in the current. As the same as other GIS software, symbol database of ArcGIS still cannot completely satisfy the requirement of digital chart production and display. Therefore, we must create symbol database according to the Map chart requirements. The paper described the design method of Map Symbol database under the condition of ArcGIS, and discussed respectively the production of different kinds of symbols, expanding ArcGIS symbol database.
