Abstract

<p>Cooperation among different fields of study is an important component in developing effective GIS curricula. In this paper, we examined interdepartmental cooperation in general and cooperation between geography-related and engineering/information-related fields in particular in GIS education programs at US universities for the 2006-2007 academic year. We found that of 114 GIS education programs, 42 (37%) programs featured interdepartmental curricula comprising classes from multiple departments, and 25 (22%) programs involved cooperation among four or more departments. Cooperation between geography-related and engineering/information-related departments was found in 23 (20%) programs. The results provide useful data for developing GIS curricula in Japan.</p>
