Based on the Study 'Cartographic Recommendations for Humanitarian Demining Map Symbols in the Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA)', a first set of symbols was developed in 2005 for inclusion in IMSMANG. The IMSMA symbology may be found in C:\IMSMAng\server\gis\maps\IMSMA.style.
Land Release Symbology
The GICHD has developed a new set of mine action symbols that is in line with the IMAS 07.11 Land Release. The 32 point and polygon symbols capture the main attribute values for various land categories and mine action activities required to depict the land release process on maps.
For usage in web applications, the image URLs of point symbols as well as a detailed description of the polygon symbols are available in the table below.
A detailed description on the methodology and the design considerations applied to develop the symbols, as well as guidance on how to implement the symbology in GIS products is provided in the new Technical Note 07.11/01-2016 Land Release Symbology. The symbols are further included as an annex to the IMAS 07.11 Land Release. These documents are available on the IMAS Website
The symbols are available in ArcGIS style format.
