Within the National Curriculum for geography at Key Stage Three references to GIS are specifically mentioned in the following two areas of the programme of study:
'Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people’s lives, now and in the future. Fieldwork is an essential element of this. Pupils learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information.'
Curriculum opportunities: 4(d) - The curriculum should provide opportunities for pupils to use varied resources, including maps, visual media and geographical information systems.
