I have been really encouraged by the availability of images which have been released under Creative Commons licenses.
While there are a lot of icon sets out there, here are some of my "go to" places.
- The first place I usually go for free icons isthenounproject.com. There is a growing community behind the endeavor and their management operations are being taken seriously.
- A second place which I have found helpful is: mapicons.nicolasmollet.com.
I have also found these images which are SVG for maps: http://map-icons.com/
As an archivist, I wonder where will these icons go if they are just privately hosted? - Is there an archive for these things?
