[landcover] Scrub texture mapnik render icon update

Reported by: Hawkeye Owned by: mapnik-team@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: mapnik Version:
Keywords: scrub, natural, mapnik, render Cc:

Description

The natural=scrub looks too much like wetland icon. The icon looks like a stylised reed or rush, these are wetland plants. Scrub is associated with woody plants/bushes up to 5m tall, not reeds and rushes.

See Wikipedia definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrubland

Therefore I propose a change to the icon to a representation of a small woody plant.

I think the current rendering better expresses the idea of 'low plants'. To me, it doesn't look like water plants. The proposed icon looks to much like trees. I will therefore close this issue as wontfix.
