Photo and traced vector version
The original photo with the hand traced vector version that users will create during the interactive tutorial.
Interactive symbol creation tutorial
The Integration and Application Network's symbol libraries have been developed over many years by various science communicators. In our attempts to build a global symbol language, we also welcome contributions from anyone with relevant, high quality vector illustrations. To this end, we have developed an interactive tutorial to show you exactly how to trace this clownfish photo in Illustrator. It will introduce you to a variety of techniques that will allow you to develop your own symbols. If you find you lack the artistic flare to create your own symbols, and are in need of something that is not available in our libraries, you can contact us for a quote to have one of our talented science communicators make them for you.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
