Enterprise GIS will become the one source of truth for University floor plan & map data and offer a platform for the integration and visualization of location-based data points to support departmental operations.
How EGIS Works
The Enterprise GIS program at Notre Dame is managed by the University Facilities Information (UFI) department within the Facilities, Design & Operations (FDO) division of the University.
UFI maintains the University master records of maps and building floor plans as well as baseline space data such as room number, room use and office occupancy.
University departments work with UFI to identify business requirements and then leverage existing GIS applications for space & asset management or create custom GIS applications to meet unique departmental needs.
All GIS applications make use of master floor plan and map data so you never have to worry about updating the baseline information and can just focus on your departmental data.
Goals For EGIS Projects
Each GIS application that UFI creates will seek to accomplish the following:
- Leverage Master Location Data: Empower departments to focus on their work, not “map updates”
- Improve Data Access: Integrate data across departmental silos while ensuring appropriate controls
- Support Data Accuracy: GIS apps support ongoing departmental efforts to clean & maintain data
- Increase Staff Mobility: Where appropriate, offer mobile-friendly apps to collect & view data
Ultimately, all EGIS projects will support University Goal IV to foster the University's mission through superb stewardship of our physical resources.
