Requesting Custom Symbol Sets (FAQ)

Last Updated: Aug 07, 2019 03:18PM EDT

Avenza Maps Pro supports the import and management of custom symbol sets.  As part of the Pro subscription, we are able to create symbol sets for you that are easy to import.  Please see the requirements below:

  • Must be a current Pro subscriber
  • Symbols must be sent in a PNG format
  • Symbols must each be either 32x32, 64x64, or 128x128 in size
  • Symbols will be named based on file names (i.e. name the individual PNGs what you want the symbols to be called in the app)
  • Filenames only support alphanumeric characters (0-9, Aa-Zz).  Special characters (e.g. @,':`,$%&) are not supported
  • If you are wanting your symbols to have transparency, you must ensure the PNGs are saved accordingly
  • If you are wanting multiple sets with different group names, please ensure these are sent in separate files/folders
