NRE/LA 355: UK Geospatial & Geotechnical Teams

NRE/LA 355: Introductory Geospatial Applications for Land Analysis, Spring 2022

UKY Geotechnical Team

The Geotechnical Team leverages the use of multiple geographic, geological and scientific technologies to obtain, analyze, and disseminate information regarding the physical properties of interior infrastructures, the earth, soils, foundations, and subsurface structures for the purposes of investigating and evaluating their condition, location, integrity and interactivity. The Geotechnical team develops and maintains geographically enriched information systems that allow users to interact with critical datasets through a map-centric environment. Those products are used campus wide to support departments such as Network Infrastructure, Utilities and Energy Management, Capital Projects Management Division, and Grounds.

UKY Geospatial Team

The Geospatial Team develops and maintains university geospatial datasets and products that support university systems and Facilities Management operations.  We design maps, draw floor plans, produce landscape designs, and deploy many custom solutions for university-wide customers.  We manage the Facilities Library and adhere to state retention policies to archive facilities records in both paper and electronic formats.  Geospatial maintains the official UK Campus Map. 
Geospatial is responsible for ensuring the UK base map, floor plans, utilities, and other critical datasets are maintained.   We work closely with Programming to develop map applications, systems, and tools that rely on these enterprise geospatial systems.  Cross-departmental communication is critical to the success of the data Geospatial maintains.  We work with FM construction areas and other planning departments to ensure information is clearly communicated and updates are made across UK systems.
