Automated Geographic Information Systems are capable of creating layered maps from a tabular data set and further, of allowing the user to analyze the information. This paper describes five North American schools that have successfully integrated GIS and have shown evidence of the value of teacher collaboration. The spatial analysis function of the database strongly supports interdisciplinary applications. Because of this, interdisciplinary projects between science and technology classes, history, science, language arts and technology classes can be coordinated using a combination of GIS and other applications such as word processing, database or spreadsheet information, power point or web page applications.
