The purpose of this paper is to develop a courseware based on GIS (Geographic Information System) for improving visual and spatial learning efficiency of geography learning. The existing coursewares are not easy to encourage the learners in learning motivation, because these provide only the visual information using simple texts or images to the learners. To overcome these constraints, our courseware using GIS that can support spatial information can control the attribute information of map. In this paper, we define the courseware as the geography learning system. This courseware system enables the learners to take the perfect learning and the repetitive learning through the feedback after evaluating the learning degree. Also using geography learning application modules we implemented, the learners can participate directly in learning as well as search information in WWW.
