Cutting edge 3D laser scanning technology is being used for the digital preservation some of South Africa's most significant heritage sites. From ancient Drakensberg San rock art paintings to the historical battlefields of Northern KZN, the African Conservation Trust (ACT) and University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) have been using state of the art technology to create a highly accurate 3D model of each site. This not only creates a permanent record of the site but is also used to encourage tourism and education through new interactive digital displays. The projects were made possible by funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) and Amafa aKwaZulu-Natali.
