CENIEH - Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana
The activities of this laboratory centre on cartography, spatial reconstruction and the analysis of geological and archaeological elements. Among its products, we may highlight: geological and geomorphological cartography, paleogeographic reconstructions, analysis of spatial patterns, 3D reconstructions, and the morphometric analysis of archaeological sites and objects.
Completed in the field and inside caves, these activities can cover temporal sequences, so that the digitalization, reconstruction and analysis of Natural and Cultural Heritage may be approached from a 4D perspective.

The laboratory has high-precision topographic equipment to perform these activities, such as total stations, GPS/GNSS systems, systems for photogrammetry and spherical photography, and laser scanners for use in the field and in the laboratory. This equipment is complemented by the necessary hardware and software for data processing and analysis, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), teledetection and 3D software applications.
The laboratory has the following equipment:
3D Scanners and Topographic EquipmentLIDAR - 3D Laser Scanners3D Laser Triangulation Scanners A Robotic Total StationTotal StationsGPS/GNSS (Fixed station + mobile station)Calibrated Digital CameraEquipment for Spherical Photography
