DANAM launched in Nepal Heritage Documentation Project

Apr 08, 2019

The Nepal Heritage Documentation Project (NHDP) recently launched DANAM, the Digital Archive of Nepalese Arts and Monuments, which documents endangered monuments and sites of Nepal's cultural heritage. DANAM's datasets include structured information about the monument's history and iconography, monument descriptions, architectural drawings and site plans as well as a broad photographic documentation. DANAM is based upon Arches, an open source platform based on graph technology and designed for managing heritage repositories. NHDP is based at the Heidelberg Centre of Transcultural Studies (HCTS) and in Kathmandu.
