GIS in Education: Across Campuses, Inside Facilities
3Introduction
Educational institutions—universities, colleges, schools,libraries, and other centers o learning—are physical entities.Typically when we picture these places, we see people—thelearners themselves and the persons who support that learning.Possibly a bit more invisible to our eyes is the actual geographythese people inhabit, experience, and navigate—the physicalenvironment o buildings, campuses, and districts. These placesare a mix o real property, associated physical assets, andsupporting inrastructure. These entities and their componentparts have spatial ootprints, exterior and interior acets, multipledimensions, and lie cycles. As guratively "living" entities,campuses and educational districts grow and change andrequire stewardship—planning, management, maintenance,and sustainment. Within and across all o these, geographicinormation system (GIS) technology and approaches play vitalroles.GIS is a technological tool or comprehending geography andmaking intelligent decisions through spatial visualization andanalysis. GIS can, or instance, help manage inrastructure bothoutside and inside buildings, providing a comprehensive way tooptimize space, move sta and classrooms eciently, map thecondition o assets, and ensure adherence to specic standardsand policies. As a spatial technology, GIS can be used to exploreeducational institutions across all scales o geography—asystem, a campus, a building, and even a particular asset. Asan integrative technology, GIS works collaboratively with other toolsets (like CAD, EAM, CAFM, CMMS, and related sotware),
