Zamani Project

data donation Partner

In 2004, the Geometrics Division at the University of Cape Town initiated the Zamani Project to capture the spatial domain of heritage, with a current focus on African heritage, by accurately recording its physical and architectural nature and dimensions. Sites are seen in the context of their physical environment and landscapes surrounding sites are documented based on satellite and aerial imagery, wherever possible. The documentation project was initiated to increase international awareness of African heritage and provide material for research while, at the same time, creating a permanent metrically accurate record of important sites for restoration and conservation purposes.

The Zamani Project has contributed a donation of a phototextured 3D model of the Game Pass Shelter, one of the best preserved sites in southern Africa and a part of CyArk's Drakensburg Rock Art Digital Preservation Project.
