Displaying a Floor Plan in a Space Plan

Whether or not your space plan includes facilities data from a database, it must include a floor plan. You can create one in Visio, of course, or import an architectural drawing created in another program, such as a computer-aided design (CAD) program. You can also use a graphic file in any format that Visio can import. For example, if you have a hand-drawn version of your floor plan, you can scan that into your computer, save it as a TIFF or BMP file, and import that into Visio.

The floor plan doesn’t have to be especially detailed to be used for tracking facilities information. You can even draw rectangles and other shapes using Visio’s drawing tools and use the results as a rough space plan. If your space occupies more than one floor, display each floor on a separate page of the same drawing file. You can also split floors across pages for easier viewing. However, if your space occupies more than one building, use separate drawing files for each building.
