Geoinformation has been utilized in many different domains as we saw in Chapters 8 and 9. Integratively, more general usage of Geoinformation could fundamentally change how we view our world and subsequently help solve comprehensive problems for our home planet. Geoinformation Science education will help us prepare professionals to implement the integrative visions. This chapter introduces three visions (including Digital Earth, GEOSS, and EcoCity) and the education for preparing the workforce to achieve these visions.
