|Kilwa Kisiwani was inscribed into the World Heritage List (with Songo Mnara) in 1981 as an exceptional testimony to the expansion of the Swahili coastal culture, the spread of Islam in East Africa and the extraordinarily extensive and prosperous Indian Ocean trade from the medieval period up to the modern era. The Great Mosque of Kilwa is the oldest standing mosque on the East African coast.
|In 2018, CyArk digitally documented three monuments at Kilwa Kisiwani, UNESCO World Heritage Site in Tanzania as part of the Heritage on the Edge program. CyArk utilized aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry as well as LiDAR or laser scanning to document the monuments. CyArk also hosted a one day workshop with ICOMOS and local heritage managers to train site stewards in digital documentation techniques and practices. The documented structures include the Gereza, Malindi Mosque, and the Great Mosque. Site manager will utilize the resulting documentation to better understand the impacts of climate change on the heritage site which is particularly at risk due to its close proximity to the coastline.
