Hello longuard,

if I understand correct you have a vectorlayer showing a bunch of points, which has a theme applied to it, and now you want to get the symbol with which the point is rendered on the map.

You queried the feature alright using someProvider.ExecuteIntersectionQuery(...) and get a FeatureDataSet containing one table with one or more FeatureDataRows.
Now all you have to do is get the theme from the VectorLayer, reevaluate the style using GetStyle(...) function and there you are:

SharpMap.Rendering.Thematics ITheme theme = someVectorLayer.Theme; 
SharpMap.Styles.VectorStyle style = theme.GetStyle(theResultFeatureDataRow); 
System.Drawing.Bitmap symbol = style.Symbol;
