Drawing pictures with EL characters

. . . . . .


All ideograms, including bases and base overlay, are symbols of some meaning.
So they can be used for icons in computing and maps. New icons also can be rationally made
in the EL compounding system for logos and meanings.
The sample below is a map of a small resort town. You see a lot of information in the map:

{container of human society}: (a) town,
{place, information}: (a) map,
{ money, functional place}: (a) bank,
{ building for work}: office,
