dc.description.abstract Eagle Vision is an NSF-funded three-year project that instructs High School teachers working in tribal schools in GIS and GIT, and in GIS-based curriculum design. Integration of GIS into the secondary level classroom has faced many barriers, and despite extensive efforts on the part of Eagle Vision to circumvent these hurdles, many of them appeared. An additional problem regarding spatial literacy became apparent. Overall, however, the program was successful in increasing use of GIS and GIT, and provided crucial information that will help improve teacher professional training in the area of GIS. en_US
