Which radar? In which viewer?

If you mean the minimap in the "official" V3 viewer, here's what those symbols mean:

Some objects and areas are color-coded:

Cyan areas Objects you own.
Fuchsia areas Objects your groups own.
Green markers

o
^
v

Other Residents:
  • At about the same height as your camera position.
  • Above your camera position.
  • Below your camera position.

Hover over a marker to view the Resident's name.

Yellow dots o Your nearby friends. To see and edit your Friends list, choose Communicate > My Friends.
Dark gray blocks Objects owned by others. In a region with lots of buildings, you see lots of these.
Red areas

Offline regions

In the Firestorm viewer, the symbols are different:

  • Round dot: An avatar at about the same height as your camera viewpoint; for example, if you're standing next to them.
  • ^ - An avatar above your camera position. They may be flying, or in a very high building.
  • v - An avatar below your camera position. This may also show if the avatar is over 1,000m.
  • + - Height unknown.
  • Dark gray blocks: These are objects owned by others.
  • Cyan blocks: These are objects you own in the area.
  • Fuchsia blocks: These are objects deeded to (owned by) a group you're in.
  • Pale Orange blocks: Scripted objects.
  • Dark orange: Temp on rez objects.
  • Red blocks: Physical objects.
  • Tiled dark blue: These are areas beyond your vision. You can see them by moving closer, or increase your draw distance in the Graphics tab of the Preferences window.
  • Red areas: The Mini-Map turns red if the Region is offline or your viewer has lost its connection.

There's more than one sort of "radar"...

Mini-Map:

Some viewers change the "green dots" that represent avatars to indicate different things.  A ^ means that they are higher than my current (camera)position, and a v means they are lower.  A yellow dot means they're on your Friends List.  You are also a yellow dot...the one at the center, with a field of view cone radiating outwards from your position.

People/Nearby window (this is the one I think you're asking about):

The + sign means they're on your Friends List.  The sound bars mean that they are using Voice.

You might also be referring to the Conversations window, which ALSO shows a list of nearby people.  This is the new "CHUI" Communications Hub interface, and it drives a lot of us old hands crazy.  For a good video tutorial on using these features, see the incomparable Torley Linden explain all at:
