David Hernández López
Full professor

Professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, in the area of Cartographic, Geodetic and Photogrammetry Engineering of the separtment of Geological and Mining Engineering, attached to the Higher Technical School of Agricultural Engineers in Albacete. Doctor in Geodesy and Cartography (1999) from the UPV, Engineer in Geodesy and Cartography (1996) from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) -First National Extraordinary Award in the degree-, and Technical Engineer in Surveying (1991) from the Polytechnic University of Madrid -First National Extraordinary Award in the degree-. Lecturer in three universities: UPV (1994-2000), Universidad de Salamanca (2000-2006) and UCLM (since 2006). Lecturing at three different levels: first, second and third, and covering a wide range of subjects in geomatic engineering such as astronomy, geodesy, mathematical cartography, photogrammetry, geodetic networks, surveying methods, monitoring, object-based software development oriented to geomatics, etc. He is author of a large number of teaching publications related with his lectures, namely Geodesy, Mathematical Cartography, Surveying and Photogrammetry. He has participated in a large number of Research and Development projects financed by public and enterprises, dealing with software development in geomatic applications. The following development might be enhanced: C++ software for planning and execution planning of aerial flights with matrix digital cameras adapted not only for PNOA but for other projects related with the National Geographic Institute (IGN), other public administrations and flight companies. He has also developed a C++ Software for flight planning with UAVs. Different prizes have been awarded to him nationally and internationally. Currently his main line of research is focused on the development of software in the fields of LiDAR, photogrammetry, computer vision and direct orientation and positioning systems. Member of the Regional Development Institute of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (IDR-UCLM) within the Agroforestry and Cartographic Precision Section. He is also a representative of the UCLM in the Cartographic Coordination Commission of the Castilla-La Mancha Community Board.
