The Geospatial Services unit in Facilities Services handles documents from all stages of design and construction. Once construction is complete, the as-constructed documents are added to the vault archive. The vault archive is a resource to OSU planners and technicians as well as architects and other designers hired by the university. From record documents, data is gathered to support campus mapping efforts. For customer service needs, please contact the Plan Center Help Desk at 541-737-7720 or email@example.com.
We provide three core functions:
The Plan Center is where project records are organized, sorted and made available for review during the design and construction phases – from schematic to completion. Documents are updated and indexed as each new version is issued, notifications are sent, visitors are logged, and review comments are distributed and filed.
Upon project completion the construction/project manager obtains construction documents, files and drawings that reflect the "as constructed" conditions of the project and transfers them to the Plan Center for archiving. We review them to assure they are complete and comply with the requirements outlined in the Facilities "Construction Standards." All materials submitted are organized according to our archival standards, scanned, indexed, and entered into the digital vault archive database (aka: DiVA). The records themselves are then physically stored in the "Vault" archive.
Once "as constructed" data is submitted at the end of projects, we update and maintain the Facilities CAD and GIS base-map data sets and files. We also reference the base map data in the process of creating thematic mapping solutions and performing geospatial analysis.
Overarching all of our three core functions is the primary responsibility of serving as a public face to Facilities Services. In the course of all our processes and interactions, we serve Facilities employees as well as other OSU departments, student class projects, city, county and state agencies, consultants, contractors, and the general public. While serving as a public face we aspire to provide exemplary customer service. We consider that to be the foundation upon which all of our core responsibilities rest.
