NATO Map Marking Symbology

#1
What is the definitive document and is it available in E copy ?
 
#2
For the UK - Land Component Handbook (Acronyms, Abbreviations, Glossary of Terms and Symbology) Army Code 71748.

It's on the electronic battle box.

I believe that APP-6(A) is the source document (under STANAG 2019). APP-6 has recently been rewritten which is the one that standardises terminology and is on the intranet. I can’t find APP-6 (A) on the intranet, but try the wikipedia entry for APP-6a, this has a link to a draft PDF document.

As QRK says there is a UK guide in the battlebox that is useful, but this will not be definitive if you are working in a NATO context.

Also on DII on the Battle Box section there

You might find a use for current NATO map symbols as a microsoft compatible Tru Type Font, courtesy of my old comrade in arms, Maj Tom Mouat MBE of t'Really Large Corps. You may never need a Rotring stencil again.
