In this study, the existing template of the Graphical User Interface menu of the open source software is used to help and guide the user to visualize and determine the information of the building space. The preliminary result of the study shows that the spaces and room areas in the building can be mapped out digitally and it can also be made available to be accessed through the web for the resident of the university.
