Education is a prudent and an essential investment. Pervasive technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), demand highly trained personnel. As geographic information technology moves from innovation to maturity, our educational concerns will also increase. Many organizations are faced with the need for renewal in an age of constant change and innovation. Learning to use a GIS effectively, users must not only know how to use the software and hardware which the system is comprised but how geographic information is going to help them solve problems in their related field.
