A GIS is a tool for working with geographic information. Therefore, its primary purpose is to maintain data about geographic space. A GIS application deals with spatial information on a computer. GIS software presents earth features on a computer and then uses GIS to visualize, question, analyze, and understand this data about the world and human activity. Often this data is viewed on a map. This chapter shows the relationship between geographical information technology and society and provides educators and policymakers with a basic understanding of GIS, its relevance to teaching and learning, and suggest possible ways for implementing GIS technology in the classroom. This means that GIS has an educational agenda to meet, since this technology presents several opportunities for teachers to implement learner-centered approaches for various subjects.
