Is there a way to copy the ESRI symbol files for use in QGIS. if not id there a resource to get various svg files to use in QGIS? DIfferent linetypes as well?

for svg resources, they seem to be arranged in themes, i.e. transport. What theme would you be interested in? – Willy Jul 10 '12 at 12:57
Although I am a Landscape Architect I do a lot of Planning work. Ideally I am looking for more linetypes in general and symbology related to the natural environment. Transportation is another one that I utilize a lot as well. Really any resources would be greatly appreciated. – LandArch Jul 10 '12 at 17:57
On another note, is there a designated size the svg file shoudl be when creating new symbology of your own? – LandArch Jul 10 '12 at 17:58
