Real Estate Operation (REO) GIS


UW Divison Of Administration 

Project Dates: 1 July 2014 to 30 July 2014

Funding Sponsor: UW Division of Administration - Real Estate Operations

Principal Investigator: Wendy Berelson

Co-Investigator(s): Jeff Hamerlinck

Project description:

WyGISC, in cooperation with the University of Wyoming Real Estate Operations (REO), has developed a GIS to organize and track the university's real property transactions including acquisitions, disposals, easements, leases and associated data (e.g. deed documents). The GIS data resides in an Arc Spatial Data Engine (ArcSDE) database. Data can be accessed via WyGISC's GeoData Applications Portal which contains customized web-based applications. Additionally, under the auspices of this project WyGISC has been working with other departments within the Division of Administration including Physical Plant.

Web-based applications were developed to increase the efficiency of real estate administration using state of the art GIS technologies including: ArcSDE and ArcGIS Server. These applications provide the ability to access and query spatial and related data about the university's statewide, national and in some cases international property holdings and improvements (i.e. buildings, parking and statues).

These ArcGIS Server based web applications are available via the secure GeoData Applications Portal. The Real Estate Viewer (REV) created using Adobe Flash allows administrators and others with access, query and display REO property data details including documents and photos. The Campus Control Network Viewer provides UW and contractors with the ability to view locations of and detailed information about survey control points on campus.

Two other applications were created for Physical Plant. The Lease Maintenance Viewer allows the user to view who is responsible for maintenance of buildings and grounds that are leased to or from the university. The Utilities Viewer is an application to query and display Physical Plant's utilities data. More recently an application was developed to view UW's emergency phone and automated defibrillators (AEDs) on campus. This application also allows for viewing the floor plans/emergency information for buildings on campus.
