I am looking for the Arizona Highway sheilds ddv font set. I used to be able to download them state by state. Can anyone help? I know they were in ArcScripts but they don't seem to be available any longer!

Is there a repository of different highway shields somewhere (for different states and other national-type highways)?

Hi Jeff, you can download them from Robert's GitHub  - DDVs_ALL/UtahDDV.ZIP

Sean Hlousek had a similar request via GISCO today.  I was able to download the 50 States DDV symbol files internally and share them out with him.  Sean posted them to GitHub at the following address:  https://github.com/VerdantSkys/DDVs_ALL 

As Sean wrote -

"All credit goes to Jim Mossman http://www.jmossmanart.com/ddv/ddv.html

 

If you use these - you might go to that site and download them all.  If you don't use these, or don't know what they are, you still might want to grab them and check them out.  In my opinion, they give maps a real "local" feel and look sharp.  (And they are fun).

 

Just wanted to share that they are available again.  If someone has a better file hosting site, it would be a good idea to make them available somewhere else.  "
