    Default Compasses, scales, and other map elements

    I'm going to be posting various compasses, distance scales, and the like here. All are hereby placed in the public domain; use as you wish.

    First a ship's wheel that will be the basis for a compass rose. PNG preview:

    Thanks.

    Another compass rose, this one with all 32 points for boxing the compass:

    This is a simple cartouche; nothing special but enough of a stand-in to avoid using bitmaps. I'm hoping to get something more elegant done soon.

    You can trivially edit the text and decide whether to make the polka-dot background a solid fill in the SVG.

    I really like your compass roses.

    Thanks. The first one are obviously maybe a nautical option and a standard compass rose. This one is for army logistical maps, maybe?

    This one is more of a template: you may want to colorize the spear shaft or use a gradient, and you'll probably want to put a heraldic device that's appropriate to your world onto the shield.
