Defining Spaces in a Floor Plan

For Visio Professional to track data in a space plan, you must uniquely identify each space with which you want to associate assets, equipment, people, and other resources. Even if your floor plan shows walls and rooms, you also need it to show space, as Figure 26-7 shows. This is a unique requirement of the Space Plan template that doesn’t necessarily make intuitive sense, but it’s how Visio keeps track of what goes where. The useful thing about tracking assets and people by space rather than by rooms or cubicles is that you can designate any area you want as space regardless of what your floor plan looks like.

Figure 26-7. Visio tracks information in a floor plan by space, which is actually a separate shape that includes the custom properties used in associating resources with a location.
