"To date, the project—which has been around since the early 2000s—has collected data on more than 60 sites, totaling more than 200 monuments in 16 countries, says principal investigator Heinz Rüther, a professor emeritus in geomatics at University of Cape Town.

“Heritage is essential for our identity, for our knowing who we are,” he explains. “I want to contribute to deepening the awareness of identity on the African continent and also make African heritage sites known to the world.”
