Abstract
Map symbol is a basic means that represents spatial data. As a significant tool of information representation and transfer, it has an important role for map display and output. ArcGIS is a GIS platform with strong functions, but its embedding symbol libraries, ESRI.Style files ,are not conform to Chinese map standard, thus can't meet the demand of map display and output for Chinese urban fundamental GIS. On the basis of ArcEngine map output modules this article elaborates classification of topographic feature, design and construction of map symbol library and map symbolization in large scaled GIS, so as to provide technical experiences for related applications and improve the efficiency of system developing.
