Personal Profile

José Rodrigues (1962) is an adjunct professor, since 1998 teaching at the Geomatics Node of the Department of Civil Engineering, and he's also a researcher at Marine and Environmental Research Center (CIMA).

He graduated in Mathematics (1992) from the University of Lisbon, Portugal, and obtained his PhD degree with honours in Computational Geometry (2009) from the University of Seville, Spain.

His research interests are in Computational Geometry, Geographic Information Systems, Spatial Analysis, GIS Programming, and Web3D. Over the years he taught courses in the Geomatics field as geographical informations systems, mathematical cartography, photogrammetry, GIS programming and 3D Data Acquisition and Modelling, both at undergraduate and graduate level.

As of 2008 he is board member of the Scientific Commission of the Master in Geomatics and Diretor of this master program between 2009 and 2012.
