More info about SIGUA

SIGUA is the acronym for system of geographic information of the University of Alicante, and is a service based on the use of GIS (GIS in English) tool designed specifically for the adoption of criteria for action and planning of staffing and use of spaces, equipment (Heritage) and the campus infrastructure.

This service began in 1997. Throughout its evolution have been many changes, highlighting among others moving to a model of code open in all fields: programming, data and broadcasting.

Thus is set up a system for the management of this campus, that timely respond, in an easy and interactive, the needs of information and organization of the campus, on the basis of the use of 'intelligent' cartography (digital associated drawings to alphanumeric records) associated with a relational database that centralizes the information required of the University Organization (centers(, departments), staff (nominal relationship, jobs, positions) and spaces (buildings, rooms, areas, activities).

The geographical referencing of properties, facilities and campus stays allows geometric relationships in location, extension, size, neighborhood, proximity, access or superposition, among others, to convert to the geographical space in the backbone of the different sources of information, which are of great complexity and variation (management of staff, economic management of spaces for its thematic diversity(, technical office, etc.).

The main objective of a tool as follow is to provide management services and organization, technological resources that permit the distribution of spaces and services, as well as the inclusion of tools capable of offering solutions to the different problems that are raised in the decisions with a high degree of detail.
