Available for an ArcGIS organization licensed with the Indoors extension.
Activity-based work environments can use areas commonly known as hotels or hot desk areas as a general space that can support numerous persons without specific space assignments.
Activity-based work environments can use hot desk areas as a general space that can support several people in their work without specific space assignments. In a hot desk area, people are not assigned any space at all, but instead can use whatever space is available in the area that meets their needs. Any person in a space may check it out or release it for the next tenant when they leave.
Activity-based work environments can use areas called hotels as a general space that can support a number of people in their work without specific space assignments. In a hotel, people are assigned to a generic space for a period of a few days or weeks but are not permanently assigned to that space.
An occupant is a person that uses indoor spaces. Occupants are commonly employees, tenants, or visitors.
Organizational areas can be an effective way to visualize spaces that are particular to specific teams or parts of an organization. These areas can be added to the Zones feature class in the ArcGIS Indoors Information Model and included in the Indoor Space Planner map to help in the planning process.
The People layer in the Indoors geodatabase has two default values for supporting organizational hierarchy: ORG_LEVEL_1, and ORG_LEVEL_2. By default, the aliases for these layers are set to Team and Department, respectively. If this does not match the requirements, the alias values can be changed in the geodatabase or for the map layer. Space Planner shows the alias values for these attributes.
Additional organizational hierarchy can be added through additional attributes in the data but Space Planner will only show two levels.
A plan is a specific scenario for matching people to spaces. Space Planner allows for the creation of multiple plans to help make the best decision about how to design a space.
Space is a generic term referring to areas and volumes within a building. In Space Planner, the space with the smallest area is a unit, and the space with the largest area is a site.
A unit refers to the space with the smallest area within a building. Common unit types are offices, kitchens, printer areas, and so on.
