Overview

Military Symbology Styles

The Military Symbology Styles give you access to the latest stylx files for use in ArcGIS and the associated Runtime SDKs. These files contain the data that the dictionary renderer uses to display military standard symbology in custom native applications using the ArcGIS Runtime SDKs. The stylx files include mil2525d, mil2525c_b2, and mil2525c. The first stylx contains the symbol data for MIL-STD-2525D, whereas the second stylx contains the symbol data for MIL-STD-2525C and MIL-STD-2525Bc2. The third stylx is an older implementation for MIL-STD-2525C. If you want to use these styles to create and edit symbols in ArcGIS Pro, you can use Military Overlay or the Military Overlay Information Model. Note that these style files are released with the ArcGIS Pro, Enterprise, and the Runtime SDKs, but this download location may contain more recent updates.
