Facility management has various stages and subsystems required to properly manage any facility. One of the various ways is to map out the entire place to show geographical relationships between facilities, which aids in a quick overview of any area of interest (AOI). The main purpose of this study is to create property data useful in mapping and managing facilities at the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro. Land allocation and space are the major focus of this study with facilities such as buildings, water tanks, generating plants, electric power poles, waste sites, and boreholes to be geospatially measured to show relationships, proximity, and other required details about them. Geographic Information Science (GIS), remote sensing and conventional surveying methods were combined for the acquisition of reliable land information and property data for computer-aided facility management system. The major outcome of this study is a data library created for facilities in the institution and maps showing layouts, themes of properties and facilities. We therefore recommended that a regular update be made to the facility data library to keep it active and current. This will aid real-time decision-making process and maintaining the facilities within the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro. Keywords: Buildings, database, facilities, GIS, Polytechnic 0150
