This paper will provide an overview of the common infusion strategies, for geospatial technologies in the pre-service science, social studies, and instructional technology classrooms. Geospatial software, hardware, and data will be reviewed, including digital globes, global positioning system receivers, geographic information systems (GIS), and remotely sensed data. An overview of the types, capabilities, costs, and advantages/disadvantages of geospatial tools will be explored. A theoretical framework, supporting research, and links to standards will be presented.
