(version 1.1; March, 2012)
The collection of icons was initially started to complete maps for Living Proof: The Essential Data-Collection Guide for Indigenous Use-and-Occupancy Map Surveys by Terry N. Tobias.
The icons originate from a variety of sources, which are outlined in the document inside. The abbreviation for the source is found at the beginning of each icon. They are formatted in EMF, which preserves vectors and can be modified in drawing programs or used directly in ArcGIS. If you want to use them in QGIS, you will need to convert the emfs to svg files.
If you have any icons to contribute or request, would like to provide feedback, or have any other questions or comments, please contact Eliana Macdonald at Ecotrust Canada.
The symbols are available completely free for anyone to use for any purpose, but we ask that you do not distribute the complete symbol package, but rather refer users to our page at the Aboriginal Mapping Network (www.nativemaps.org) where the latest version can always be downloaded. Thank you!
