SmithGroup’s Campus Strategy & Analytics team uses a variety of mapping tools to demonstrate space distribution for higher education institutions. This type of map shows the location and density of a particular space type found within buildings across a campus. Building footprints were extruded vertically based on the amount of assignable square feet (ASF), or density, of that space type in the building. Image: SmithGroup
