ABSTRACT

In Spain, one can find geographical diversity and unique sites of great significance and cultural heritage.
Many of the nation’s treasured places, however, have deteriorated or have even disappeared. What is left,
then, should be studied and documented both graphically and infographically. It is important to preserve
and document Spain’s unique locations, especially those related to vernacular heritage, to transhumance
and visual impact assessment in many national infrastructures projects. Windmills are important
examples of agro-industrial heritage and are sometimes found in the beds of streams and rivers but can
also be found high in the hills. Their presence is constant throughout the Iberian Peninsula. These mills
are no longer in use due to technological advances and the emergence of new grinding systems. The aim
of this study was to present a specific methodology for the documentation of windmills, to create
a graphical representation using computer graphics, as well as to disseminate knowledge of this agroindustrial
heritage. This research has integrated graphic materials, including freehand sketches, photographs,
digital orthophotos, computer graphics and multimedia in the creation of a specific methodology
based on cutting-edge technology such as a digital photogrammetric workstation (DPW), global navigation
satellite systems (GNSS), computer-aided design (CAD) and computer animations.
