Now that Marble, your possibly favourite celestial body watcher
(http://edu.kde.org/marble/), has better and better support for files in GPX
and KML formats, I am working on having these formats being properly shown in
the file managers/dialogs, with the type name and a, that is why I am writing
here, proper icon.
What is the way to ask for another icon in the Oxygen Icon set these days:
a) File a bug report on the Oxygen Icon set, or
b) ask here in the mailing list?
GPX and KML are rather formats for rather similar purposes, with KML having a
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyhole_Markup_Language says on KML:
"Keyhole Markup Language (KML) is an XML notation for expressing geographic
annotation and visualization within Internet-based, two-dimensional maps and
three-dimensional Earth browsers [...] The KML file specifies a set of
features (place marks, images, polygons, 3D models, textual descriptions,
etc.) [...]" ...
So perhaps there could be still the same icon for both formats, like there is
the same icon for e.g. jpeg and png.
No idea about a visual term to be used for the icon, that I could propose.
Putting a compass, the Marble logo, on a document shape might miss that this
is about tracks and other elements to be displayed on a map/body.
