I hesitate to ask for standard symbols, but is there a de facto standard symbol(s)? Or a popular set of symbols to use for electronic markers?

Our utility will soon start marking with electronic ball markers similar to these: http://images.pennnet.com/articles/ww/thm/th_193172.jpg (from Water World Article 'Municipality Marks New Pipelines for Future Access').

I found this one somewhere, but I can't remember where I grabbed it from:

Here is what is in arcmap 10. But somehow I don't think that is what you are looking for:)

  • I looked through the ArcMap 10 symbols prior to posting the question. Are there electronic marker symbols in there and I missed it? Jan 18, 2011 at 16:30
  • Duh, You said electronic not water or waste water. I'll have to learn what electronic markers are first. :o

  • The physical asset is called an electronic marker (as you can imagine, searching for marker returned a useless result set). So I'm looking an electronic marker (map symbol) to represent an electronic marker (plastic balls that are buried w/ the underground asset). Jan 18, 2011 at 18:28
