Word of the Day: “GIS – Geographic Information System”

GIS: Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map. This enables people to more easily see, analyze, and understand patterns and relationships.(http://nationalgeographic.org/encyclopedia/geographic-information-system-gis/)

The UniSpace team use GIS software “CadCorp” to hold all spatial information and building plans. It is also used for locating and referencing our major sites. This information then integrates into UniSpace Archibus, which in turn feeds into Interactive Maps, People Manager, Maintenance Request, Building Operations Modules, Reporting and Asset Management.

To view a great example of GIS in action, look at our news item on Nature Maps.

Contact us if you need more information about Archibus or the UniSpace suite of Apps or how your information could be integrated in to UniSpace
