Key points:

1. The Zamani Project at the University of Cape Town (UCT) captures spatial information of tangible cultural heritage sites across Africa and beyond.

2. The Zamani Project team, in collaboration with UCT Libraries, is in the process of ingesting their processed data products to ZivaHub, the University’s institutional data repository, powered by Figshare for Institutions.

3. Uploading their data to ZivaHub allows the Zamani Project team to securely store and share large amounts of data and provide for efficiently managed reuse.

4. Through the use of ZivaHub, the reach of the Zamani Project has broadened exponentially. By citing and embedding their ZivaHub data items on the project’s website, the team hopes to deepen their connections with researchers from a variety of disciplines and to enable future scholarship opportunities.
