Where would I find symbology for shipwrecks?

Mapping Center Answer:

We actually have some symbols for shipwrecks in one of our ArcGIS fonts.  Check the ESRI NIMA DNC PT font -- there are symbols there for these three types of shipwrecks:


Wreck showing hull or superstructure


Submerged wreck (dangerous)


Submerged wreck (non-dangerous)

There are no specific styles called ESRI NIMA DNC PT. These symbols are located within a font that you can use to create a character marker symbol.
