Symbol Creation Service / New Zealand stream vs ditch vs restored ditch image
« Last post by febria on November 26, 2013, 10:39:17 pm »
Hello -

I need a version of IAN's stream vs ditch image to reflect agricultural practices and vegetation in New Zealand.  This would be used for teaching and communication with landowners and other stakeholders in Canterbury, New Zealand.

Using the existing IAN stream vs ditch diagram, I would like to request these modifications:
(1) Stream
- Replace with local trees: willows

- replace corn with cow, sheep and pivot irrigators (see link)
- add macrophyte in the ditch (see link for monkey musk example)
- remove thermometer
- Add visible layer of sediment/dark sand on bottom of ditch

(3) Add "Rehabilitated ditch" as a third image/panel
- Add fence on either side of the ditch
- Cows and sheep outside of the ditch
- Add riparian plants (carex, cabbage tree, grass) between ditch and fence:
- Immediate ditch-side vegetation is Carex sp.:
- Add leaves and tree/log in ditch
- Add local NZ trout in ditch:

If I can provide any additional info/images, please let me know. Thank you so much.

Hi guys, 
  I would really appreciate it if you could create a symbol for the juvenile and adult stages of the Giant Kelpfish, Heterostichus rostratus.
I've attached links below to some excellent photos of these fish(These are not my photos. I do not have the rights to them)


Thank you very much.

Technical Assistance / Re: svg display problems Inkscape user on Mac

Hi Devon,

Sorry you are having trouble with Inkscape. I can confirm that I am having the same issues. Unfortunately I don't think there is much I can do as this appears to be a bug with Inkscape or with the way Illustrator exports to SVG. I can import the SVG versions of those symbols into Illustrator and everything works fine. I also don't know why Inkscape behaves differently when importing vs opening an SVG file. I will attempt to look into this further and get back to you.

When I import the .svg files into Inkscape, they do not display properly. Many parts of the image end up being transparent. This seems to affect sections with colour gradients, but I'm not sure it is only them. Strangely, the previews display correctly and the images are OK if I simply open the file in inkscape (but this isn't handy if one wants to use more than one image). Any suggestions?

Symbol Creation Service / New symbol for increased storms
« Last post by kierynk on July 24, 2013, 02:53:40 am »
Im wondering if a 'increased storm' icon exists - or could be created? I want to use it to indicate climate change suggestions that storm frequency and/or magnitude might be increased in the future.

Thanks for pointing out the mistake. I have relabeled it:

I believe I am correct in assuming it is from the Syrphidae family?
Symbol Creation Service / Fly is mislabeled as a bee

The raster image that is labeled "Bee on flower, Acadia National Park, Maine" is an image of a fly, not a bee.
