General overview[edit]

Wikigraphists Bootcamp was organised to train the Wikimedians in and around India on vector graphics by using Inkscape to work with SVG files. Post 6-month after Wikigraphists Bootcamp a follow-up survey was conducted to understand the impact of the program, and to explore further training needed to the participants. This survey was conducted after the the SVG Translation Campaign 2019 in India which was conducted to create awareness of importance of Vector graphics in Wikimedia projects to community members in India.

The surveys were conducted by User:Gnoeee and User:KCVelaga, with the support from User:RMaung (WMF), Lindsay Anderson, and User:CAlmog (WMF).
