I used THESE before, although not specifically in Visio. I think I was using Word at the time.

Is anybody else using them?

Yes - They are being used at the following:

The classified British Army Joint Operations Command System (JOCS), used by the Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJQH).
The classified Defence Information Infrastructure (DII) backbone system for UK Defence.
The British, German, Italian and Malaysian Staff Colleges as well as the Pentagon and the Defence Academy of the UK.
The British Army has them incorporated into the SLIM and CHOtS computer software build, and the CD version of "Official Publications"
Individuals in the American, Australian, British, Canadian, French, German, Italian, Danish, Czech, Slovak, Rumainian, Polish, Portuguese, Peruvian, New Zeland and Malaysian Armies use them
NATO NC3A Operational Research Division
QinetiQ and Dstl (formerly the UK Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA))
Defence R&D Canada - Ottawa (DRDC Ottawa) ; and Defence R&D Canada - Valcartier (DRDC Valcartier)
Department of Oceanography, USNA

Whether he means HIS ones are used, or just ones LIKE his isn't clear, but I found them quite handy. :)

MapSymbs are now the British Army approved map marking symbol fonts. They were endorsed by HQ Land and the Director General of Doctrine and Development (DGD&D) and are in the process of being mounted on most Army systems (CHOTS, JOCS, etc.). I'd like to think it's because they are the best, but we both know that it's because they are the cheapest. Ho Hum... The Reference is: HQ Land Command LAND/G6/06 dated 23 Jul 02.

Hey, it was about 2 or 3 years ago I used them and I dont have time tonight to sit and read through pages of guff. I was trying to help.

If I had the time to sit on my Arrse and write as many posts as you, I'd probably have researched it better.

Pardon my bad.

:wink:
