GIS and Mapping
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a tool used at UCF for infrastructure management in daily operations and emergencies. It records spatial information through shapefiles and attributes to a coordinate system, and is visualized from bird’s-eye view. All university commodities are located, field verified, and mapped in the ArcGIS software, aiding in new construction planning, infrastructure maintenance and replacement prioritization. GIS also supports various projects including the gas system pressure testing and system flushing program, and will soon extend to campus street lighting, utility meters, and the reclaim water line expansion.
