When students use GIS, they develop analysis and critical thinking skills, no matter what field they work in. GIS is a learning platform for conceptual modeling. Students also learn technical skills that will help them with their future employment. Spatial thinking skills acquired in the classroom deepen their understanding of the relationships that exist in the world and the complex problems facing society today.
