Abstract: This paper discusses the importance of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the business curriculum. During the Summer II, 2004 term, work began on the development of a course in geomapping fundamentals. The course was made possible with an internal technology development grant at Angelo State University (ASU). The proposal was to develop a new geomapping course at ASU that would blend both business management and marketing courses to enhance current theorems taught in each curriculum. The course would be of special interest to students majoring in managing information systems, computer science, physics, mathematics, education, management, marketing, and agriculture.

Keywords: gis, geographic information systems, business, information systems, geomapping, marketing
