Subject:SUM: MI-L Archaeological symbols


Thanks for the responses Jane Mason at the Woodland Trust, Darryl Beresford
at CDR Group, and Martin Higham at Avantra Geosystems.

Information included:

1. The new version of Mapinfo will allow for and include a greater number of
fill and line styles.

2. Site for ArcView symbols (but  apparently these are True Type symbol
fonts that can be used in MapInfo - add to Windows font directory):
www.mapsymbols.com/symbols2.html

3. Exegesis' HBSMR Access database/GIS system for managing arch. info -
used for SMRs, developed in partnership with English Heritage's National
Monuments Record (NMR) and the Association of Local Government
Archaeological Officers (ALGAO): http://www.esdm.co.uk/HBSMR.asp

4. http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/project/goodguides/gis/

The result seems to be that there are no definitive standards for
archaeological mapping that have been transfered into (MapInfo at least)
GIS.  It seems to be down to the individual to choose or create appropriate
symbols and styles.  In our case the archaeologists are interested in
recreating cartographic features in digital form rather than / as well as
intelligent data layers.

Hope this is of interest to those who requested it.

Cheers
Karen

Dear all,

I am on the hunt for archaeological symbols.  If you have or know of any
archaeological map symbols, line styles or fills available for use in
MapInfo, or if you have any experience of producing archaeological style
maps from MapInfo, I'd be very grateful if you could get in touch with your
experiences.

Many thanks in advance,
Karen

Will SUM
