GIS Icons to Complement Tango Icon Set

A couple of days ago I posted a link to the Tango Desktop Project, which aims to design an icon set for open source desktop applications:

A post to one of the OSGeo mailing lists revealed a related project for GIS icons in desktop applications related to the Tango Desktop Project. You can find the web page for this icon set here:

Pirol Plug-Ins For OpenJUMP

Larry pointed me towards some of the Pirol plug-ins for OpenJUMP today. I don't think the Pirol project is heavily involved in OpenJUMP programming any more, but you can still get their plug-ins online. All of the plug-ins appear to be released under the GPL, and the source code is included with the JAR file downloads. You can get these plug-ins for OpenJUMP here:

http://www.al.fh-osnabrueck.de/jump-download.html

Most of the page is in German?/French? but there are short English descriptions of each plug-in.

Some of these plug-ins look quite useful, and I may start to host the source code and executable form of these plug-ins at the SurveyOS Project.

Tango Desktop Project - Icons For Open Source Apps

I just stumbled upon this project after a post to the OSGeo mailing list:

http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Desktop_Project

The project aims to develop a set of icons that will allow open source applications to have a consistent look & feel. The project includes a base icon library, and some icon design style guidelines.

I'd like to consider using the icons in OpenJUMP, and will be looking for ways to use them in other software that I develop.
