While your GIS software may contain a wide range of ready-made symbols which you can use to represent the data in your data layers, there will be times when you will want to create your own custom-designed symbols. This is not as difficult to do as it first may seem and this video shows you how to create your own custom symbols. It uses QGIS 2.6.3, to demonstrate this, but the same approach should work in all versions of QGIS, and, indeed, other GIS software packages.

This video is presented by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, author of 'GIS For Biologists: A Practical Introduction For Undergraduates', and is brought to you by GIS In Ecology (www.GISinEcology.com), the world leader in providing GIS training for biologists by biologists.
