Rock art monitoring and education groups
Mnweni /Amazizi rock art monitoring and cultural education groups
As technology moves forward, new methods of capturing, presenting and storing valuable rock art data has become available. The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) together with the African Conservation Trust (ACT) are using state-of-the-art technology to create the first digitized archive of every known San rock art site in the Drakensberg mountain range. This is done using digital photography, 360° digital video, GPS plotting of each site, and GIS mapping. All known sites (some not visited since the 1970's) are being re-documented and their condition re-assessed, to provide an accurate and up-to-date archive that will not easily be destroyed.
