Abstract

E-Buildings-An information system which would help the WPI Plant Services Department to efficiently manage campus safety. By collecting data on fire equipment and hazardous waste sites, we were able to create a centralized database that would facilitate code compliance and inspection fulfillment.This database,linked with 3D models of the campus's main academic buildings creates an essential tool for locating and maintaining specific safety items. Creation of three-dimensional map of the WPI campus, interactively linked through GIS and data basing applications, allows for the quick and efficient consultation of safety information. This system demonstrates the benefits of using state-of-the-art technology for streamlining the processes used to maintain safety within a college environment.
