Q - question

How to create custom line styles for GIS maps?

A - answer AutoCAD Map 3D, Autodesk Topobase and MapGuide support also special user-defined custom line symbols (linetypes). The definitions of the line styles have to be done directly in the XML format and so it is quite difficult to make your own line styles.

With the free utility CADstudio FDO LineStyle you can now generate such line styles much more easier, directly from AutoCAD drawing objects. This application converts (exports) objects of the type LWPOLYLINE, LINE, ARC, CIRCLE and TEXT directly to the corresponding XML definition.

You can find more information about FDO LineStyle (FDOLS) and the download link on www.cadstudio.cz/FDOLS.
