Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies are computational tools that allow better management of inhabited physical spaces. In educational institutions, for example, it is possible to generate real-time monitoring of the people who enter, recording their journey permanently within the facilities. This will allow greater control over biosafety and protection measures such as social distancing, reservation of workspaces, and registration in smart forms regarding the health conditions of each person. The purpose of this project is to design an application that allows the management of the physical spaces of Block A-Candelaria headquarters of the University of La Salle through the use of GIS tools in the framework of the post-COVID-19 reopening; With this pilot of the interconnection and visualization of geographic information carried out in one of the busiest buildings of the university (block A), the concept of 'digital twins' is addressed and web and mobile applications of the ArcGIS Online platform are developed integrating ArcGIS Indoors as a new work extension for virtual post-pandemic monitoring and control environments.
