This appendix describes the default iconography of the ArchiMate language. Modelers can choose to use a different iconography on any diagram they desire, if it will help communicate better with the stakeholder for which the viewpoint was designed. It is, however, recommended to use the default iconography so that teams using the ArchiMate language have a collective understanding of the view being developed. Conforming tools shall at least support these notations.
