Andreas Georgopoulos is basically a Surveyor Engineer, who fell in love with Photogrammetry about 40 years ago. Hence he obtained his MSc and PhD (UCL) on this subject and afterwards he chose to teach it to younger students of Surveying as a Professor at NTUA, Lab of Photogrammetry. Cultural Heritage and Monuments are his second love and all these years he is trying to make the one work for the other with some success. He teaches Photogrammetry and Monument Recording to undergraduate and postgraduate students of Surveying and Architecture. His research activities include all kinds of contemporary optical methods for geometrically documenting monuments of all sizes. Among others, he has worked for the geometric documentation of Knossos (in Crete), of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (in Jerusalem), of the Dafni Monastery (in Athens), of monasteries on Mount Athos, Byzantine Churches in Cyprus and many more monuments all over Greece.
