Abstract

Our GPY307-01 Winter 2011 team has taken on the task of assembling, organizing, updating & presenting a complete dataset of all current & previous CAD drawings & related data, into a comprehensive GIS. The purpose of our project was to, primarily, update and geocode all of the campus records that are currently held in digital CAD format; and convert them so they could be managed in a Desktop GIS. This project focused on acquiring existing CAD records, overlaying it on a current orthophoto, then updated any gaps or missing information before converting CAD data into GIS file formats. We worked directly with Grand Valley State University facilities services to create our current map product. We were able to understand the conversion process, and developed a methodology on how to integrate our maps with Google Earth, and other Internet Map Servers.
