Mankind and technology evolve hand in hand. The former requires technology to enhance her/his way of life and the latter requires time to improve robustness and versatility to provide better application and services: A similar paradigm occurs in the Malaysian education system, which passed through a series of gradual changes to leverage itself with current technology. Basic instructional traditional education models have transformed into a new instructional model approach with computer technology integration. Today, ICT turns as an essential teaching tool in public education systems but it was mainly utilized in creating instructional design courseware and presentations though its capabilities can be further exploited and extended such as performing data analysis. Thus, this article describes ICT capabilities expansion in performing data analysis with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). GIS capability is not yet used extensively in the Malaysian education system due to its complexity in proprietary applications, cost, hardware, and knowledge skills. However, with current advancement and open source applications (OpenGIS) availability, Malaysian students will soon experience and obtain opportunities in reinventing new skills in GIS. This article forwards GIS’s basics and usages in education systems; and describes the steps in utilizing GIS as a tool in teaching and learning. GIS applications are not only limited to spatial data displaying but also spatial analysis performing.
