1This is the general OSM Map-Icons directory.
2All the icons in these directories have to get an
3entry into the map-features.xml file. So we have one common
4place for all icons used for drawing maps.
5We currently have three subdirectories representing
6the three icon schemes(classic,square.big,square.small).
7This means that the user can choose between those
8three (for now) styles for rendering. The three styles
9are represented in the three directories:
10  - classic: normally no frames, no borders, transparent
11             but if you are unsure put the icons here
12  - square.big: these icons all have a square shaped frame,
13             where the color of the frame tells which category they belong to.
14  - square.small: similar to the above(square.big), only smaller
16Inside these directories the icons are structured by category.
17Where every category has it's own sub-directory.
18There are the following top-categories:
19      - accommodation
20      - education
21      - food
22      - geocache
23      - health
24      - money
25      - nautical
26      - misc
27      - people
28      - places
29      - public
30      - recreation
31      - religion
32      - shopping
33      - sightseeing
34      - sports
35      - transport
36      - unknown
37      - vehicle
38      - waypoint
39      - wlan
40Each of these categories except 'unknown' can have sub-categories. If you 're
41adding more icons you should try to put them into one of the existing
42categories. For each (sub-)category we have a category-icon which is named
43like the category directory. So for example, for the directory <style>/food/
44we have to have an icon <style>/food.png. The same always applies to each
45sub-sub-directory. before you start a sub-category you'll have to create an
46icon for this subcategory. This way the renderer can always take the category
47icon if there does not exist a specific icon for this.
48If you are not sure where to put the icon you should consider using
49the others category(directory).
50There are also some png files with size 0 in the directories. These files
51are placeholders for possible icons and poi-types.
53Additional files:
55- overview.html
56        gives a nice overview of the available Icons with english descriptions
58        gives a nice overview of the available Icons with german descriptions
59- index.html
60        shows all available information about the Icons and POI-Types
61        (not completely done yet)
