We need an icon to convey the idea of displaying nearby wiki articles on a map.
This icon may be used only for a map control if the prototype for Wikivoyage (T132971) gets positive feedback and a migration from the wmflabs-hosted maps to the Kartographer maps is approved.
The control associated with this icon does:
- Zoom out a bit from the original area and the POIs on map
- Removes existing POIs and replace them with one single POI for the current wikivoyage article.
- Adds one POI per nearby wikivoyage article around the current wikivoyage article.
- Toggling the control on/off will enable/disable this feature.
Here is the icon that was/is used for the wmflabs maps:
(Note: see example https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Salzburg#Get_around).
I did a very quick and early draft for the first version of the Wikivoyage prototype (T132971) :
(Note: the white circle around the dots may not be by design).
I'm looking for contribution, inspiration and feedback about:
- How well can we convey the idea?
- How well (or how bad) the initial draft works visually.
- How well it fits in the general icon guidelines.
