The aim of this report is twofold. First, to present the Graphical User Interface (GUI) developed at IRI for monitoring robotic experiments in the context of the EU project URUS, its capabilities and intended use, and its place within the communications workflow, based around middleware YARP. Second, to introduce the GIS map, extended by us to full 3D, of the experimental area, known as Barcelona Robot Lab, a 10.000 m^2 section of the Campus Nord at UPC, Barcelona, Spain; this 3D map is extensively used in the GUI but has been found useful out of its scope.
