Description

i made some svg icons to put in xpm folder, so we can have icons for poi_taxi,barrier_bollard,and others already implemented in osm.c and item_def.h

SVG source files are picked from Brian Quinion Icon Collection (CC0 license) http://www.sjjb.co.uk/mapicons/contactsheet

attached a patch with my suggested changes to navit_shipped.xml.

Great work :) I spoted this topic, too, but we might work on uniting the icon styling http://wiki.navit-project.org/index.php/User:Usul/OwnMapIcons

So please stay tuned, till we refactored the way we collect embedd icons in the styles and how we can switch between different levels of detail.

  • Keywords icon poi added
  • Milestone set to version 0.6.0

user:xenos1984 is working on a new icon technique that allows us to store multiple icons in one file so we decrase the number of files significantly (related to a WinCE installer issue).

He made a script that uses the original OSM icons:

I'm working on improving the current map style, too. This will need still some time, as we need a better strategy to deploy mapstyles and it's ressources to the enduser.

So as related to usability only, I schedule it for next major release that puts usability in focus.

P.S. I created this OSM wiki page about icons, long long years ago ;)
