4. Project Narrative: (Must be tied into what educational benefits will be received by the students, faculty; what goals are going to be achieved etc.)
 

The School of Urban & Regional Planning seeks to enhance its new VPT Design Studio [part of the Visual Planning Technology Lab (VPT Lab) - a department managed facility located on the Fort Lauderdale campus] with seven (7) Dell 30” monitors, three (3) Wacum 21.5” Wacum digitizing monitors, ten (10) Dell Precision computers, six (6) surge protectors, fifteen (15) headsets, seven (7) monitor soundbars, and ten (10) copies of Adobe Creative Master collection. The main purposes include, but are not limited to: creating and displaying large format plans and posters before they are printed, creating 3D imagery, creating layers of planning ideas on top of satellite photography, digitizing GIS layers (computer mapping) by pen input, and producing videos to support student planning projects.

5. How is this project aligned with the Strategic Plan? Please site specific goals and strategies.
 

First, by creating a technology enhanced design studio, this project satisfies both Goal 3 "Building World-Class Academic Programs and Research Capability" and Goal 5 "Building a State-of-the-art Information Technology Environment". Second, it is our hope that students continue to promote and use similar technology in South Florida upon graduating (satisfying Goals 2 & 4).

6. Please complete the project cost spreadsheet below. Also, please describe briefly the elements that will be included as noted below:
  a) Any hardware requirements (which should comply with standards established by the IRM Standards)
 

The 30” monitors will be capable of displaying closer to scale text imagery that is regularly plotted out on to 24” x 36” and 36”x 48” posters. Plus they will be able to display multiple tools around a project area in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Producer (both are within the master collection). The digitizing tablets will be able to create layers of planning ideas on top of satellite photography and digitizing GIS layers (computer mapping) by pen input. The computers (w/ high end video cards), headphones, soundbars, and surge protectors will enable these endeavors.

  b) Any software requirements (which should comply with standards established by the IRM Standards)
 

Ten (10) copies of Adobe Creative Master Collection to be able to create and manipulate 2D and 3D imagery, video, and audio components.

  c) Any personnel costs - OPS and other time-limited appointments.
