Abstract

With the development of modern geography, new requirements have been put forward for traditional geography teaching. Based on the implementation of secondary school geography teaching in China, and a case of application of ArcGIS in the practice of map teaching, the present work analyzes how to build the geographic information literacy and innovation ability of secondary school students by using the ArcGIS geographic information system software, and puts forward some recommendations, including (1) the compilation of ArcGIS teaching materials suitable for teachers and students’ characteristics; (2) the research and development of ArcGIS software for the secondary school education; and (3) the enhancement of ArcGIS training for secondary school geography teachers. It is hoped that the application of ArcGIS software can promote the development of geography teaching and provide modern teaching methods for secondary school geography. With the maturing of ArcGIS software it will become more popular among secondary school geography teachers, a development which will certainly take geography teaching in China’s secondary schools to a whole new level.
