Calcite point symbols

A collection of SVG illustrations for map symbology.

Provided symbols exist in one or more of the following three sizes:

  • 13x13
  • 17x17
  • 21x21
Why 3 Sizes?

Installation

npm install arcgis/calcite-point-symbols --save

JavaScript Exports

Icons are made available as named ES6 exports. This way you can import just the icons you need into your app:

   
1
2
3
import { campground21 } from "calcite-point-symbols";

console.log(campground21); // => "M12.402 16.976H19L10.503 2.998 2 16.976h6.626l1.888-8.94z"

The icon names will be lower camel case. If the icon name starts with a number, prefix the name with i. This is due to the fact that JavaScript variables cannot begin with a number.

If your build system does not perform tree shaking and dead code removal, there is a chance that importing the icons using this syntax will make your bundle extremely large. If that is the case, you can also import icons directly:

 
1
import { campground21 } from "@esri/calcite-ui-icons/js/campground21.js";

Some icons use multiple paths and opacity in their construction, for these the data structure will be an array of path data as follows:

    
1
2
3
4
[
  { d: "M16 6vh...", opacity: ".1" },
  ...
]

Note: It is not recommended to import the entire library of icons. This will have negative performance implications. Use the technique above to select only the icons your users actually need to download.

TypeScript

Types are also available for projects leveraging TypeScript. CalciteIconPath describes all exported icons (both single and multi-path) while CalciteMultiPathEntry describes an individual path from a multi-path icon.

JSON Format

All icons are also provided as part of a JSON file. If you installed via npm, you can import the full icon data set using the following:

 
1
var calciteIcons = require('calcite-point-symbols/docs/icons.json');

This will give you an object containing all the icons in the library at all sizes:

           
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
{
  version: '{current version number}',
  icons: {
    "a": {
      alias: [],
      category: '',
      21:['M23.756...']
    },
    ...
  }
}

Note: path data omitted for brevity.

Most icons will have simple strings as path data, but some will be more complex as they need to store not only path, but opacity as well for multiple shapes. Icons of this structure will be annotated with the multiPath flag.

Individual Icons Structure

All the individual SVG icons have a common file structure.

This is what the shoplifting-21.svg looks like:

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 21 21">

</svg>

None of the icons have stroke attributes. The fill attribute can be defined with css:

   
1

svg {
  fill: gray;
}

All the other styling properties applicable to the whole svg element are applicable.

svg:hover {
