Exploring the Power of GIS for Facilities Management

Today at GovLoop we are announcing the release of an interactive infographic that shows the power of GIS for facilities management. This interactive infographic takes a look at the fictional Campus 2.0 and ways government, educational or business campuses have implemented GIS to assist in facilities management. Facilities management for GIS is an approach that uses technology to manage and support people, places, and processes. In general “facilities” is a broad, overarching term that covers university and business campuses, military bases, airports, and commercial sites. With facilities management for GIS, administrators can take a holistic view of the facilities they are managing – both interior and exterior.

By clicking the image below, you will be able to head over to campus and find dozens of case studies showing how the Campus 2.0 has leveraged GIS for facilities management. Be sure to explore the hot spots below to learn how GIS for facilities can help transform facility management.

To navigate the interactive map, simply use the control panel at the bottom of the infographic viewer. You can also use your mouse – just use the scroll wheel to zoom in and out, and then click and drag to navigate around the screen. Additionally, the infographic and all of its interactive features are optimized for viewing on your smartphone or tablet!
