Els nostres voluntaris tenen coneixements i competencies diverses. Aquesta pàgina exposa una selecció dels il·lustradors altament qualificats que han decidit d'utilitzar les llicencies de contingut obert i de confiar les obres a Wikimedia Commons.

I'm Eric Gaba, aka Sting on Wikipedia, French born in 1966 and live in Brazil. I'm helicopter pilot and photographer.

I joined Wikipedia in November 2004 with my passion for Greek Antique history and in 2005 the Graphic Lab on WP-fr. With the lack of schemes or maps in the project to illustrate articles, I started to learn about Inkscape and create my own pictures. Still not satisfied with my maps due to the difficulty of finding sources of good quality, I heard about Digital Elevation Models provided for free by the NASA or other US government agencies in early 2007. This was really the starting point for me creating good quality maps for the project.

As pilot, I like very much see a map with the representation of the relief as it explains many things : the location of settlements, borders, movement of armies, etc. And the DEMs provided almost all I needed so I got more and more specialized in that area. Gaining experience with the software, I started to extract elevation layers and vectorize them in order to create topographic maps and wrote tutorials to help other contributors to draw maps of different types using DEMs.

I am a french computer engineer, living in France.

I joined Wikipedia in December 2005, and the Atelier Graphique (the french Graphic Lab) in 2007. First it was to create maps of the Marquesas Islands, so I followed the tutorials made by Sting (see above). Then, I continued to draw maps, and also diagrams and schemes, on various subjects.
My favourites softwares are Inkscape and the Gimp, and GlobalMapper & 3Dem for the maps.

I am a Chilean translator, living in Santiago of Chile.

I have been collaborating in Wikipedia since 2005, and joined Wikimedia commons in 2006.

I illustrated first for fun and later as a way to express myself.

I usually make diagrams and schemes. I work with GIMP and Inkscape, open-source software.

You can see my tutorial (easy to follow) about how to make diagrams, that you can use in wikipedia.
