As we mentioned in a previous post, for gvSIG 2.1 we have included a new set of symbol libraries. These libraries are also included among the basic installation packages (but they are not installed by default). What does that mean? We can install them at any time without even needing an internet connection.
One of these libraries, called POI Cities, includes a set of symbols that represent the main attractions of a city: parks, airports, subway stations, different types of shops, museums, monuments, etc.
It is based on the symbology that MapBox project uses and, specifically, in the library called Maki.
We show in a video how to install it and visualize the appearance of this new library. From now on your urban maps will be much more elegant.
