The Campus Planning CAD/DMS/GIS group uses Computer Aided Design (CAD), Document Management System (DMS), Global Positioning (GPS), and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies to manage floor plan/space data and archive/organize facilities historical infrastructure, manage campus utility data and infrastructure data. The campus CAD/DMS/GIS 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/DMS/GIS group also maintains over 650 AutoCAD drawings in support of the UNH Campus as well as FAMIS (Facilities Asset Management Information System), which manages space on campus. Recently, the CAD/DMS/GIS group implemented Meridian, a document managment system, in order to archive and organize over 45,000 archival drawings/documents and organize for efficient retrieval all documents pertaining to construction projects . In addition to these responsibilities, the CAD/DMS/GIS 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.
List of Current GIS Data Holdings
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.
