The mission of the Campus GIS and Mapping Program is to foster a smarter, safer, and more efficient campus by providing accurate and reliable geospatial data - technologies - and software systems for the entire campus community. Our Geographic Information System (GIS) is a collection of spatial databases storing real-time data for thousands of objects and layers on campus - underground, indoors, outside - if it can be mapped… we’re probably tracking it. If you’re a student, visitor, staff or faculty member - you’ve got access to data through our custom web and mobile software applications -- as well as ready-for-print formats.
While we’re a new unit within SRS, our award-winning team had been coordinating the Campus GIS and Mapping program from within the Geography Department’s InfoGraphics Lab for nearly two decades. We provide a wide range of services including: custom mapping, software development, spatial data analysis & hosting, project collaboration and support. Some of our freshest and most innovative work has been focused on Indoor Mapping and Data Systems as part of the UO Spaces Project.
As members of the Safety and Risk Services division we’re excited to apply our work to such a stimulating topic. We enjoy coming to work each day and collaborating with our colleagues to build new tools to make the challenging work of providing a safe campus environment more efficient. At our core, we’re innovators and makers. We’re passionate about location-based software and mapping applications. We employ a "Design Thinking" approach to our work - that emphasizes a close relationship with our users and rapidly deploys working products that evolve throughout the course of a project.
