A Geographic Information System (GIS) utilizes numerous computer-based tools to store, create, manage, analyze, and visualize geographic or spatial data on a map. The NC State Enterprise GIS group, housed within Campus Planning and Strategic Investment, maintains and updates a central repository of GIS data and maps for Facilities as well as other departments and groups at NC State. Understanding the geographical context of our physical campus space and assets allows us to inform our community, identify the needs of our campus, support operations, and more. Check out our Story Map to learn more about what we do with Enterprise GIS or visit our GIS Portal view some of our mapping applications.
