symbol dictionary

A symbol dictionary is a set of symbol primitives and a rule engine that allow developers to use military symbols in their applications. These symbols adhere to military symbol specifications such as MIL-STD-2525C. The symbol primitives are inside a style file. Military symbols are displayed by associating the layer / overlay's dictionary renderer to a symbol dictionary.
