24 Gorgeous Map Icons

I recently developed a rich mapping / GIS javascript API and library for Obsurv. Apart from coding, I also had the great opportunity to develop a bunch of specialized button icons for various map functionality. See all icons in the slider below.

Please note that the icons belong to Grontmij and may not be used without the company’s permission.

The objective was to design buttons that fit the overall visual style of the application – and yet clearly communicate what functionality they represent. Adobe Fireworks was used to first create the icons in 400px * 400px resolution and later exported to be used mostly in a resolution of 30px * 30px.
