    I found an excellent cartography website called Decorative Maps. It has awesome info on ornaments & embellishment, compass rose designs & rhumb lines, map design & layout, and my personal favorite: map symbols.

    As an example, checkout an image about relative sized mountain symbols from the map symbols page:

    Dear lord I'd go nuts putting in all of those hills and mtns and shading them all. Also, where would I put my trees? Excellent inspiration, though. Nice find. The Gutierrez map on one of the pages is probably my favorite of all time.

    I think you will have to make your own. If you google 'Erwin Raisz' you should find more examples around.
