The site uses Wikifont icons created by Mun May Tee-Galloway.
The iconset has not been updated, but I suggest we continue developing it as an open source project. The font has been forked in https://github.com/Wikidocumentaries/WikiFont.
Let's list missing icons here first!
The icons are used primarily in the header bar of each module. They can be buttons or menus, but the same icon are used in both cases.
Most needed icons
To mark a longer text about an image. Used in the metadata editor.
To mark inscriptions on an image. Used in the metadata editor.
- Photographer, author
A creator icon, may be the same as the user icon. Different roles? For the metadata editor. Should imply a person.
- Topic / tag / depicted
Tag icon is often needed. It is used most prominently in the metadata editor.
- Depicted person
The depicted person could be different from the author. Could be a person in a frame.
- Depicted place
The depicted place is currently marked with location pin. It works well.
- Street address
The street address could be marked with a stamp or letter.
The source institution of the image in the metadata editor. The museum icon possibly.
The collection at the source institution of the image in the metadata editor.
- Inventory number
The ID of the image at the source institution and collection in the metadata editor.
- Publishing platform
Another organisation to be included in the metadata editor listing. Could be the respective icons: Wikimedia Commons, Flickr, Finna, Ajapaik, Internet Archive, Europeana... and/or a generic one, a web icon, globe...?
Image ID on the publishing platform in the metadata editor. Could be used to mark any ID.
- Image info page
Image info page on the publishing platform in the metadata editor.

Image metadata: Painting, photograph etc. Perhaps an data rows related to an image.
The physical size of the depicted object. Media metadata.

The pixel size of the depicted object. Same or different from Measures Media metadata.
The digital size of the depicted object. Media metadata.
- File format
- Expand page
Needed in tool sections as an option to expand the view to a bigger one or another window. The 'full window' icon would be suitable.
- Shrink page
A pair to the previous.
- Crowdsourcing task
The icon for the tasks menu in various content modules. A shovel, working gloves, machinery...
Needed as a link for additional info. The usual i-icon would be suitable.
Sort items. Sort criteria is expressed as text in a menu, only the main icon is needed. Used in all galleries. Arrows up and down. Currently using Facet > use for faceting.
- Display as (list vs gallery)
Needed icons LIST and GALLERY.
