Map Marker Icons[edit]

I've been creating my own custom annotated map on the side both as a hobby and for personal use. In the process, I have made custom Morrowind themed map markers and after seeing the work here, decided to offer them up for use with the online map, if you so choose. As I said, they are designed to fit the Morrowind theme. Many are borrowed from the game, some are borrowed from Oblivion, some are made with the hopes that they will be intuitive. I made a lot of them to cover all the bases and make the map as thorough as possible. I've broken them down into categories:

MW-icon-map-Geographical.gif Geographical[edit]

These are geographical locations found across the province; naturally occurring or so infused with the land, it’s obvious to group them here.

Image Location Type Description
MW-icon-map-Cave.gif Cave
MW-icon-map-Grotto.gif Grotto
MW-icon-map-Landmark.gif Landmark As general as Vvardenfell or Sea of Ghosts, as specific as Khartag Point or River Samsi.
MW-icon-map-Monument.gif Monument From the Shrine of Azura to the Earth Stone.

MW-icon-map-Guilds.gif Guilds[edit]

These are the guild related locations that have free standing, independent locations visible when zoomed into their relative cities and towns. These were taken from the in game signs where available.

MW-icon-map-Mine.gif Mines[edit]

The different types of mines found on Vvardenfell. Due to the size of the icon, it is difficult to represent these types and still convey that the location is indeed a mine. Therefore it may be advisable to simply use the default mine icon for each type.
