Del Polytechnic of Informatics or Del has a map or mockups the entire area of the campus. But, it is only a picture or mockups without any explanation of the building, position, direction to another building. When user wants to search about Del campus, user must see the mockup manually. There is no geographical data about each object in Del campus. Moreover, there was not any system that can store, manipulate and display data to the web. Based on the stated problems, the main objective of this research is building Geographic Information System for Del. Geographic Information System is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical or spatial data. The geographical data are stored in the spatial database. This research started by collecting data through observation, for example collecting documentation of building, tracking position of building with Global Positioning System. The result of observation was spatial data stored in multiple shapefile that representing information of every object, such as area, building, room, park, and object position (coordinate) in the earth. Spatial data stored in database which is modelled using pictogram and implemented on PostgreSQL database.Del Geographic Information System was able to show view of location, building, room, and direction or route to another position in the web application
