I would like to download the National Parks Services symbology to use in ArcGIS 10.3. In March 2012, there was a blog post on the ArcGIS Resources Styles page that included a link to the NPS styles. Updated NPS style | ArcGIS Blog  Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, the link no longer connects to the proper page. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thomas, thanks for the quick reply. I am brand-new to Geonet, but it appears that you must "follow" me in order for me to send you a message. Thus, could you "follow" me? Thanks again for your efforts.

Hi Marcus,

You might want to try contacting Tom Patterson​ or Aileen Buckley​ (or whoever is in place of them).

I wonder if between the built in "Public Signs style" and the "Forestry style"  marker symbol you can find all the symbols you need.  you may need to change the colors.

 

Might not be all of them.  You can view them in ArcMap -> Customize -> style manager.  It's a start, if the download link isn't restored.

Rebecca, thanks for the tips. I believe the vast majority of the symbols I will use are indeed located in the U.S. Forestry style set. However, I 've been told that there are a few symbols that are unique to NPS, and I wanted to check them out as well. I do appreciate your response.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my original question. I took Adrian's advice and went straight to the source (i.e., the NPS) and got the stuff for which I was searching. Consider this issue resolved!

Marcus,

I am glad to know that your issue is resolved. Did you get a new download link or did you just contact someone at NPS? Either way, can you post your solution here (or at least how you arrived at your solution)?
