ArcGIS for smart campus operations provides insight on how to minimize risk and maximize return on investments in facilities. Drive efficiencies by using live maps to deliver real-time operational awareness of facility space, asset inventories, utilities, building conditions, and public safety. With GIS for facilities, you can easily visualize facility status information and identify poor productivity patterns.

Campus facilities and planning

Facility managers achieve success using powerful data management, analysis, and visualization. A digital approach to facility management helps leaders assess security risks, develop plans, optimize space use, protect staff and assets, and improve daily operations. GIS for facilities helps lay the cornerstone for a campus digital twin.

Campus utilities

ArcGIS contains all the elements staff members need to meet utility challenges. They can use ArcGIS to maintain key information, analyze it, and distribute it to everyone who needs business intelligence through a system of record, a system of engagement, and a system of insights. This process creates a true digital twin of your campus infrastructure.

Campus health and safety

Whether you need to know the real-time location of officers and staff on campus, analyze historical incidents of crime to understand campus risk, or generate Clery Act reports and information requests, ArcGIS brings spatial analysis to the forefront for informed decision-making and enhanced campus security and safety.
