How to add representational symbols to a map

Discussion created by cornelison on Sep 22, 2011
I am new to GIS.  I have a map that has polygons of buildings.  I have color coded the buildings according to ownership.  I would like to add symbols (like a knife and fork for a restaurant or a bed for a hotel) but I don't know how to add another level of symbols to these buildings.  Only some of the buildings will receive symbols.  Some help with the best workflow would be great.  I am pretty good at getting and following detailed instructions from the help menu, so an outline of how to do this would probably suffice.
