Abstract

We have engaged in research and developing a GIS training tools in the field of urban planning for undergraduate education using FOSS (Free/Open-Source Software). GIS training materials mainly consist of several spatial data and converter, and are provided with sample data and instruction of coursework as one set for weekly practical training. These materials have been utilized for actual undergraduate GIS training course since 2006. We've obtained some feedback about GIS environment improvement using FOSS and training materials from students. These results show some satisfactory / unsatisfactory points from the aspect of providing training environment. Currently we have been working improvement to existing tools following the findings from the response.
