Full professor at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), I have developed my research in the field of the geometric documentation of heritage since 1991 and worked in more than one hundred projects considering the register, representation and dissemination of architectural, paleontological or archaeological elements. I am the author of several monographs, papers and conferences about this subject, most of them accessible from OrcID and other aggregators such as Hispana or Dialnet. As a teacher, I have supervised undergraduate and master theses, as well as a phD regarding the geometric documentation of heritage.

Álvaro Rodríguez Miranda. Laboratorio de Documentación Geométrica del Patrimonio - Universidad del País Vasco (UPV/EHU), Vitoria-Gasteiz (España).
Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain), 1976. Engineer in Geodesy and Cartography. From 2000 I have been working at the Laboratory for the Geometric Documentation of Heritage of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and have taken part in around 80 projects considering many kinds of elements such as archaeological excavations, castles, churches, bridges, caves, etc. Since 2007 I combine that work and the teaching at the same university. I obtained the phD in 2014 with the dissertation “Spatial documentation of Heritage: data preservation. Necessities, possibilities, strategies and standards”. My research fields are the techniques of geometric documentation applied to heritage and, on the other side, the preservation and re-use of information about elements of heritage.
