Diagrams of route signs of IsraelEdit

Hello Fredddie,
Firlt, I would like to thank you for create SVG versions of Israel's route signs. However, some minor changes are needed in order to make the diagrams more accurate and to use them on Hebrew Wikipedia:

  1. The color of the blue and green (and the red) diagrams isn't accruate, you can see the right shade in PNG versions (the blue shade is probably #0000FE).
  2. The white margin of the diagrams is redundant, can you crop it?

Thanks in advance, –Dork105 (talk) 14:44, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Here is the source I used. I have to go back and insert it into the Information templates.
  1. The colors were pulled directly from the source. If you can find the official color sourced somewhere (not a probably), I will gladly change them.
  2. The source (PDF page 262, it takes a while to load) clearly shows that it should have a border, so I will not change that.
Hope that helps. –Fredddie 15:01, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
First, Thank you again for your contributions.
  1. About the margin – you right, there is a white margin but not black border (I guess that is the thing that bother me), can you remove it?
  2. About the official colors – I contacted the responsible authority for official answer, They did not give me an answer yet, when they answered I would update you. However, as an Israeli citizen I can say with certainty that the colors (blue, red and green) of the route signs are more like the colors of existing diagrams, which were created also by Israeli editors that saw the route signs. –Dork105 (talk) 23:18, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
I consulted with Gonnym about the colors; he seems to think that what I did is correct. I have no real stake in what color they should or shouldn't be. I was just willing to make the graphics. –Fredddie 23:24, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
FWIW, the 1px black border is there so you can see the white border.
  at 70px high (standard infobox height on ENWP), it's just visible enough to show you that there is a white border
  at 20px high (standard junction list height on ENWP), it's not visible at all
As you can imagine, I don't see an issue with the one-pixel border. –Fredddie 05:42, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
Selecting the blue color (with a color selector app) from the PDF gave me #3832F4 and from the gave me #0030F6 (and the one Fredddie used gave me #0030F6) - so really, until we get our hands on the official color they are all pretty much okish.--Gonnym (talk) 09:38, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
Today I got an answer from Ministry of Transport about the colors, they referred me to the Israeli Standards Institute because the colors are determinied in Israeli Standard 12899. While I still have not received an answer from SII, I know that IS 12899 is similar, if not identical to the EU Standard 12899. I can also say that i found the official Israeli Signboard, and according to sign #611 (color of highway) it seems that the official colors areː #0000FE (blue), #FE0000 (red), #007E00 (green) and #000000 (black).
About the other subjectsː
I still oppose the black border because the purpose of the white margin is to seperate the number from rest of the sign. But if you think it's necessary then fine;
There are some roads without SVG version (383 for example), can you create them?
For highways with two versions (blue&red) there are 3 different filesː blue, red and combined. can you do the same here? the only problem is the files' names - because of the template that displays the road sign by filename it is crucial that all files will have the same pattern (today it's "ISR-HWXXX.png" to regular or combined, "ISR-HWXXX_blue.png" to freways and "ISR-HWXXX_red.png" to non-freeway signs (of highway that also has freeway section. --Dork105 (talk) 22:50, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
Here is a comparison of the colors:
Looks really close to me. Almost like a faded road sign, heh.
For the naming scheme, the files that I created use this: ISR-FW-XXXX.svg for blue freeways and ISR-HW-XXXX.svg for all others where XXXX is the route number. Thus, we have   and   for Highway 1 (Israel).
As far as a combined images are concerned, I personally don't think they are necessary since you can place two images side by side or atop one another. If someone else wants to make them, go for it. –Fredddie 01:25, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm also oppsoed to the combined versions. When used in tables or as small icons elsewhere they become meaningless as they are too small to view. Accessability is guideline (at least on that should be followed, so as you shouldn't use a smaller text size than 85%, you really shouldn't use a smaller image, just because you want them on top of each other (which doesn't even follow any real-life usage). --Gonnym (talk) 11:48, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Fine, the combined version isn't necessary. I prefer the non-faded colors (it's looks much better...), so if it can be fixed (along with deletion of the black border) it will be great. Last thing, in order to complete the replacement of the files (and to edit road sign template in Hebrew Wiki) it is crusial that all current existing road signs will have SVG alternative. --Dork105 (talk) 14:48, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
I've started with converting pages, but it would help me if you could change any you see. Once we can delete old icons it will be easier to see what is still needed. --Gonnym (talk) 15:06, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Of course, I also started a duscussion in order to change the template to use these signs (the template responsible to major part of road signs' appearances). But I wonder whether we should wait for the color change before replace all the signs. --Dork105 (talk) 15:26, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
First of all, thank you Freddie for creating all of the files. They look great. Despite that, I agree with Dor, that bottom colors would look better and not like faded colors. Tal (רונאלדיניו המלך, talk) 17:46, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Can we all agree that the red color is close enough? I can't see a difference. The other two I can fix later today. –Fredddie 20:49, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
  Done The blues and greens have been updated! –Fredddie 02:05, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so muchǃ One little thing – it seems that for some routes don't have SVG version, such as 383 and 431 (only highway version). Can youː

  1. Create the missing signs?
  2. Create only-frame version in order to replace the incorrect frames? Soon ther will be a reform of roads' numbers (many more roads and changes of numbers), and it will be much easier to create new diagrams.

Thank you again. Dork105 (talk) 13:41, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Done. I will also upload my templates. They'll make it even easier to create new files in the future. We have a whole collection of templates at Category:Highway shield templates. –Fredddie 15:56, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Fredddie, are you sure that File:ISR-HW-000 template.svg is using the correct font or size? Compared to File:ISR-HW-999.svg the zeros seem way bigger. Similar issue with File:ISR-HW-0000 template.svg and File:ISR-HW-8967.svg. --Gonnym (talk) 09:51, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Yeah it's right. On the templates, I leave the numbers' path open so you can edit them like a text editor. And since it's open, the servers try to display the correct font. Since they don't have Triumvirate, the server approximates it to the closest font it has, probably Sans Bold. A combination of both factors makes it look goofy. If you look at Category:Highway shield templates, they all kinda look goofy for that reason. –Fredddie 13:32, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Conversion progress: All, en.wikivoyage, de.wikivoyage, and most of have been converted (not including any new signs which might have been added since). Still waiting for to approve my use of AWB, but if someone else here already has permission, I can upload my settings file with everything already set. --Gonnym (talk) 15:11, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
