Rock Art Data Capture

Supported by

Leveraging human-machine teaming to identify and protect high value cultural assets in Far North Queensland

World-heritage Aboriginal rock art dating back thousands of years is one step closer to being re-discovered for the first time thanks to drone, artificial intelligence (AI) and mapping technology carried out by KJR, WYAC and partners. 


Western Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation (WYAC) governs the land on Quinkan Country where this project is located. WYAC is integral to the projects success in navigating rock art sites for continued data capture. Local Ku-Ku Yalanji rangers have undergone drone certification training to assist the project’s technologists and archaeologists document re-discovered rock art inaccessible by foot, which will help increase awareness of additional sites and advise the preservation of West Yalanji culture.


The goal is to develop a digital platform for documenting rock art utilising various technologies:


With aim of achieving the project objectives:

of digital assets with High Cultural value

of Indigenous rangers to up-skill members of the local community in tech industries highly sought after in a commercial market.

of site discovery and capture process

Future application

In addition to the re-discovery of sites using drone and hover mapping to preserve culture this project potentiates economic growth for the region and West Yalanji people.

Applying the skills developed and data captured into different industries will increase local employability and contribute to the scaling of technological and economic growth in regional and remote areas of Australia.
