I am looking for road signs, ie county roads, stop signs etc.

Where would a guy look for the signs, be blocks or xref?

 

Is there away to use the sign images fro ArcView?

The sign images in E$RI are fonts just create a text style using one of those add some text then either explode the text or wmfout and back in to create the blocks as needed. I created  a ton of them years ago that way. If yours are not font type but BMP you need Raster Design, but a few command signs are in the ArcPad font.

I don't see the free signs in your link Allen. Can you verify?

 Neil,
No I can't. I believe you mean the non-MUTCD link. I only got a quick look at their front pabe and then was blocked by our firewall. I don't know why, because we ARE a Highway Department. But IT is funny that way.

 

It's possible that things have changed since Mar 2011.
