Abstract: This aim of this study is to develop a Quick Response (QR) code supported web-based geographical information system (GIS) for facility damage report in university buildings. In general, some academic buildings such as facility management system of Faculty of Architecture, Planning and Surveying (FSPU), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) encounter a problem of technicians spending more time to manually search for information on damaged equipment. Data processing such as scanning, georeferencing, and digitizing of the building plans were performed to create geodatabase file of the building. QR Codes at the different rooms were then generated by utilising QR Code Generator software. The waterfall or SDLC model was applied to produce a web-based system. This integrated system has facilitated the users with Home and Menus pages that benefit the outsourced parties to directly receive damages reports of the faculty. A survey of user satisfaction was also conducted to evaluate the practicality of the system and the result has shown that the system has the potential to be used by the department of facilities management by integrating with existing database system (e-Aduan) towards a better facility damage management. The proposed web-based system application will assist technicians and staff in managing the facility easier.
