North Arrows, Scale Bars, and Other Map Elements
 
 
 

Sample north arrows and scale bars (both metric and imperial) are available as dynamic blocks for you to insert into your maps.

These north arrows are examples from the Symbols folder.

These scale bars are examples from the Symbols folder.

Because they are in dynamic block format, these symbols are easy to scale, rotate, and color. Use the scale bar attributes to set the correct scale.

The samples are available in \Program Files\AutoCAD Map 3D 2010\Sample\Symbols.

A modern, easy-to-read legend style is automatically available when you add a legend to a map.

The legend style on the left appears in your onscreen map. The legend style on the right appears in the published version.
