- Detailed proposal
We will present in 15~20 minutes the 8 years long development of coordinated high quality map making on Wikipedia:Graphic_Labs with an emphasis on form requests, workshop approach, and skills transmissions. Since 2005, the Graphic Labs created or improved on request +20.000 images, among which ~6.000 maps. Exposing this project's evolution and success, we will enlighten some principles for community management in the field of web 2.0 graphism. A special focus will be on Map Making, a highly technical process which benefited a lot from toolboxes, tutorials, graphic guidelines and more recently from academic insights.
