+Zamani Project
+--------------
+
+* Started by the UCT Department of Geomatics in 2004
+* Aims to preserve cultural heritage by documenting sites
+ and producing laser scanned models
+* Over 100 models of sites in various African countries including
+ South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania
+* Some of the models are very large and contain billions of points

+
+Problems Faced
+--------------
+
+* Fast-growing volume of data
+* Difficulty in storing the data
+* Difficulty with viewing the large models in real-time
+* Data locality issues
+* Large number of users interact with the data
+
+----
+
+Solution Approach
+-----------------
+
+* To enable viewing of the large 3D models at interactive frame
+ rates we will implement a hierachical multi-resolution data
+ structure
+* A server with a large amount of storage will be procured; this will
+ be used to store the models and GIS data, and support the core
+ functionalities of the solution.
+
+
+----
+
+Division of Work
+----------------
+
+* Tim will be implementing the hierachical datastructure to enable
+ real-time interaction with the large 3D models.
+* Michiel will be implementing a Scientific workbench that is
+ specialised for GIS research. This will pay special attention
+ to data movement and intergration with existing GIS tools.
