A Symbolizer describes how a feature is drawn on a map. The Symbolizer defines both the shape of a geometry and a graphical representation of a feature such as color, opacity, fill pattern, etc.
MapSurfer.NET has 13 different types of symbolizers. They are:
Please note that OpenGIS Symbology Encoding Implementation Specification official supports only LineSymbolizer, PolygonSymbolizer, PointSymbolizer, TextSymbolizer and RasterSymbolizer. All other symbolizers are introduced only in MapSurfer.NET. Therefore, they are not necessarily supported by other mapping toolkits.
