Autocad LT 2016 And Mapping Help Please.....

So I have been given the task to update our very outdated site map. I just got AutoCAD LT 2016 installed on my workstation. I am assuming 13 years of bad changes, and very outdated site design. The map is 2D and the camera icons look homemade. I have done some AutoCAD work in the past but am by no means a power user. I am asking for any input anyone can offer, and I really want to update the "camera" icons that we use for fixed box, dome, PTZ, etc... They don't have to be specific to the manufacture, but something that looks modern and better than what I have now. I am almost a 100% Axis shop, or am going in that direction, including all new installs. I see some tools on the Axis website, but they look to be for 3D mapping. Is there a good resource for camera "icons" (I am not even sure of the correct name)? Also, we maintain the Surveillance maps, but another department maintains other aspects of the maps, floor layout, and they can't have access to my Surveillance maps, and I need to be able to take their maps and import the changes that occur on the ground level.

Thanks for help.
