The GIS team is committed to providing improved decision making, better asset management and cost savings through the use of geographic information systems. Assets are collected, maintained and updated both in the field and through CAD and Revit project integration. Extensive, customized front end applications allow users across all campuses to visualize campus data, run numerous queries and statistics, collect various types of asset data, and answer many planning and management questions.

The GIS team helps users understand spatial and temporal patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision making.  Our services have been utilized by 125+ entities throughout the university community. Find out what we can do for you.
