This is part of a larger ongoing project for pictographic humanitarian map design; others may be released at some point. If you have questions or ideas about the direction of the icons please contact cgblow@gmail.com.

Roadmap: We are currently looking into ways to automate the customization of the icons, to create a larger set for use in humanitarian mapping contexts. Let me know if you would like to collaborate!
