Abstract

A Campus guide map for Taraba State University Jalingo was produced. The data source for the study includes satellite images of the study area and field survey using a GPS device to collect coordinates of major ground control points. This research incorporated the use of geospatial techniques and functionalities such as georeferencing, digitizing and geo-database creation to generate a campus guide map. The findings of this study reviewed that most of the structures and roads are not adequately labeled or named for easy navigation. The study also showed that development is confined mostly to the North Western and southwestern part of the campus.           We recommend structural planning and spatial development within the campus land cover in the future.
