Since around 2000, GIS researchers in Japan have collaborated to provide materials for GIS lecture classes usable in university education. The outcome incudes a GIS core curriculum, a GIS “body of knowledge” explaining the details of the curriculum, a series of PowerPoint presentations, and a GIS textbook. However, they have not yet provided materials for GIS exercises using GIS software. Therefore, we launched a new project to provide such materials which will be available online and accessible by anybody. This paper introduces the project and materials provided so far.
