This is the documentation for milsymbol
. You can view the changelog
to see what has been changed in the different releases.
Please star the library on GitHub if you like it, also I appriciate all information I can get about what you use milsymbol
for. Milsymbol is created in my spare time and all maintenance and development is done without any external funding.
The following standards are supported in milsymbol.
* Just extends with symbol codes that are missing in 2525C.
Milsymbol also supports a lot of different options for the rendered symbols:
- Filled/Unfilled symbols
- Framed/Unframed symbols
- Text fields
- Movement indicators
- SVG/Canvas output (using SVG or Canvas draw instructions)
- Outlines of symbols
- and much more...
For detaild descriptions of what is possible with milsymbol, see the API documentation
- Open Layers 3
- and many more...
You can find samples of this on the Examples page
- Super fast, can create 1000 symbols in less than 25 milliseconds (SVG output)
- Less than 160kb when gziped
The symbols are created using building blocks defined in the code and no images or fonts are used, this makes it possible
to modify almost every aspect of the symbols, such as fill, frame, color, size, stroke width and easily switch between
APP6 and 2525 symbology. It is also quite easy to extend milsymbol with new functionality or modify existing icons.
Milsymbol is created and maintained by Måns Beckman.
