534 Grave

A distinct grave marked by a stone or shrine. Location is at the centre of gravity of the symbol, which is orientated to north. A cemetery is shown by using grave symbols as space permits.

Colour: black.

Line width 0.18mm

This symbol is oriented to north.

ISOM 1990 Definition

As ISOM2000 but line width enlarged from 0.175mm.
Number changed from 534 to 532

OCAD Methods

Defined as point symbol 532.0, can be drawn with any drawing tool.

This is a rotatable symbol, it can be rotated with the direction tool and will rotate with the map if the “include symbols” box is checked when the map is turned.

Care when drawing is needed, a click will place the symbol; a click with drag will rotate the symbol in the direction of the drag. To correct this, redraw carefully. Don Scarrott has written a utility that straightens all rotated symbols.

Drawing Considerations

It is acceptable and clearer to give the cemetery symbol a background of the settlement (527) yellow/green symbol.

Graveyard - aligning grave symbols

Set grid distance (options/scales to 1mm), turn grid on and position on alternate grid markings. (Mike Godfree)
