Now that we have gone to using electronic charts, where do we find what the various chart symbols mean if we have forgotten what they stand for?  It used to be that we would turn the chart over and on the back we would find the symbols and the answer was right there.   

The answer to any and all chart symbology questions can be found in a single document from the FAA entitled Aeronautical Chart User's Guide. This guide provides an explanation of all VFR and IFR chart terms and symbols and can be found on the FAA website page of digital products.
