Campus Planning Computer Aided Design (CAD) & Geographic Information System (GIS)

The Campus Planning CAD/GIS group uses Global Positioning (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) technologies to acquire campus utility data, infrastructure data, floor plan and space data for incorporation into the campus wide GIS and FAMIS. The campus CAD/GIS group assists with operations management, planning, decision support, disaster planning/recovery and special projects. Currently the GIS holds over 10,000 point features and 150 miles of line features covering a broad range of areas including: Utilities, Infrastructure, Accessibility, Transportation, and Natural Resources to name a few. In addition to these responsibilities, the CAD/GIS group also administers all UNH-owned property records, the UNH CORS base station, the Campus Dig Safe Program, the Facilities plan room, the campus floorplans as well as the development and creation of various thematic maps and interactive web applications.

Web Applications

Recently Campus Planning GIS has begun to develop a number of web applications, powered by ArcGIS Server, as a way to easily deploy campus data to end users. All web applications are interactive and allow end users to view not only the spatial location of features but also the attribute information for these features as well. Additionally, users have the ability to report any errors, make comments, ask questions, etc. through our Error Reporting tool.
