Campus Planning Computer Aided Design (CAD), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Document Management System (DMS)

The Campus Planning CAD/GIS/DMS group uses Global Positioning (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Document Management  System (DMS) technologies to manage campus utility data, infrastructure data, floor plan/space data and archive/organize facilities historical infrastructure. The campus CAD/GIS/DMS group assists with operations management, planning, decision support, disaster planning/recovery and special projects. Currently the GIS holds over 15,000 point features and 200 miles of line features covering a broad range of areas including: Utilities, Infrastructure, Accessibility, Transportation, and Natural Resources to name a few. The CAD/GIS/DMS group also maintains over 650 AutoCAD drawings in support of the UNH Campus as well as FAMIS (Facilities Asset Managment Information System), which manages space on campus.  Recently,  the CAD/GIS/DMS group implemented Meridian, a document managment system, in ordert o archive and organize over 45,000 archival drawings and documents.  In addition to these responsibilities, the CAD/GIS/DMS group also administers all UNH-owned property records, the UNH CORS base station, the Campus Dig Safe Program, the Facilities plan room and Meridian, the campus floorplans for export to FAMIS, building room signage, support to FPM (Facilities Project Management) 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.

Maps and Site Plans

In addition to interactive web applications, Campus Planning GIS also creates multiple thematic maps and site plans utilizing data housed within the GIS.  Commonly requested maps include:

  • UNH Property Map
  • UNH Building ID & Address Map
  • Maintenance Zone Map
  • Transportation Bus Route Map
  • Campus Aerial Imagery Map
  • Various Utility Maps, Site Plans, and Campus Electrical One Line Diagram
