Effective space management relies on information about people, places, and processes. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology helps facility managers organize and spatially visualize where, and in what type of space, people work. Faced with the daunting task of a Center reorganization which, potentially, could involve the movement of three-quarters of its workforce of 4,000, NASA Langley space utilization planners were in need of tools and techniques to assist them in not only planning a large-scale move, but in management of the facility's available space. In response, the NASA Langley GIS Team is developing a set of tools and applications to support these critical decision making needs. Primary to this effort is the development of a suite of GIS applications that allow space utilization managers to plan and evaluate various personnel move scenarios for buildings and rooms at the center. Lessons learned from this activity will be discussed.
