This example creates a dashed line that is 5 SIZEUNITS wide, with 10 SIZEUNITS on, 5 off, 5 on, 10 off …

This example symbol is a star, used to represent the national capital, hence the name. The font name in defined in the FONTSET file. The code number « 114 » varies, you can use MS Windows” character map to figure it out, or guestimate.
SYMBOL NAME "natcap" TYPE TRUETYPE FONT "geo" FILLED true ANTIALIAS true # only necessary for GD rendering CHARACTER "r" END
This example is fairly straight forward. Note that to have 3 sides you need 4 points, hence the first and last points are identical. The triangle is not filled.
SYMBOL NAME "triangle" TYPE vector POINTS 0 4 2 0 4 4 0 4 END END
This example draws a cross, that is 2 lines (vectors) that are not connected end-to-end (Like the triangle in the previous example). The negative values separate the two.
SYMBOL NAME "cross" TYPE vector POINTS 2.0 0.0 2.0 4.0 -99 -99 0.0 2.0 4.0 2.0 END END
This example creates a simple filled circle. Using non-equal values for the point will give you an actual ellipse.
SYMBOL NAME "circle" TYPE ellipse FILLED true POINTS 1 1 END END
This example creates a symbol that can be used to create a downward diagonal fill for polygons.
SYMBOL NAME "downwarddiagonalfill" TYPE vector TRANSPARENT 0 POINTS 0 1 1 0 END END
As of MapServer 4.6, you can use the symbol type HATCH to produce hatched lines. The following will display hatched lines at a 45 degree angle, 10 SIZEUNITS apart (center to center), and 3 SIZEUNITS wide.
SYMBOL NAME 'hatch-test' TYPE HATCH END
LAYER ... CLASS ... STYLE SYMBOL 'hatch-test' COLOR 255 0 0 ANGLE 45 SIZE 10 WIDTH 3 END END END
Other parameters available for HATCH are: MINSIZE, MAXSIZE, MINWIDTH, and MAXWIDTH.
This example shows how to style lines with symbols.
A 5 SIZEUNITS wide black line is decorated with ellipses that are 15 SIZEUNITS long (and 7.5 SIZEUNITS`wide). The ellipses are placed 30 `SIZEUNITS apart, and the negative GAP value ensures that the ellipses are oriented relative to the direction of the line. The ellipses are rotated 30 degrees counter clock-wise from their position along the line.
SYMBOL NAME "ellipse2" TYPE ellipse FILLED true POINTS 1 2 END END
LAYER ... CLASS ... STYLE WIDTH 5 COLOR 0 0 0 END STYLE SYMBOL 'ellipse2' COLOR 0 0 0 ANGLE 30 SIZE 15 GAP -30 END END END
