    If you are talking about the Engeneering Org Floorplan : there no ready list template like this list in SharePoint. What you need to do to create a list like this:
    1. Create a list from a "Custom List" template
    2. Enter the list settings and click on the "Title" column name.
    3. Change the column name from "Title" to "Office".
    4. Under the list settings click on "Add column" and create a new column of "People or Group" type. Give this column a title (in the video it's "Name").
    That's all. I hope it helps.

    When you save a Web Drawing to a SharePoint Library you can open this file from SharePoint Library using Visio Web Access. So to open the visio "page" just enter your SharePoint Library that contains your web drawing file via browser and click on your file. If Visio Services where installed and activated on your server properly you will see the content of your visio diagram.
    You can also try to use the Visio Web Acces Web Part to see the diagram on SharePoint Page:
