I'm searching for SVG of different (german) hydrant types ("Unterflurhydrant", "Überflurhydrant", "Hydrantenschacht") etc.

The symbols are currently stored as polygons in MapInfo's proprietary .TAB (the equivalent of .shp) format. You specify the tab, tell which feature you want as symbol and voila - that symbol is used for all hydrants of type xy, stored as polygons.

I have now to setup our look'n'feel in QGIS. So I need our polygon-symbols as SVG OR I get the symbols as SVG from somewhere.

I need to use them for visualization purposes in QGIS. Any possible/suggested data sources?

  • Have you seen these symbols used somewhere before? If you regional water service has a web map then you may be able to ask them to provide these symbols to you? – TeddyTedTed Dec 2 '19 at 9:29
  • well, we use them in our GIS - but we created polygons and use them as symbols (MapInfo). I have now to setup our look'n'feel in QGIS. So i need our polygon-symbols as SVG OR i get the symbols as SVG from somewhere. – sn1ks Dec 2 '19 at 9:56
  • you can try to make them by yourself, you only need a vector draw program like inkscape: inkscape.org/de – eurojam Dec 2 '19 at 10:39
  • yeah i tried that but my inkscape/drawing skills are too poor! – sn1ks Dec 2 '19 at 11:06
  • How many symbols are there? What format are they current stored in for use in MapInfo? – TeddyTedTed Dec 2 '19 at 11:22
