This report takes a look at the practical and technological challenges when implementing Geographical Information Systems(GIS) into high school geography learning. Locating challenges discovered by other researcher as well as challenges discovered through teacher interviews resulted in the following key challenges: Time constraints, software complexity, installation issues, and GIS usage focus. Locating challenges is important for the further work with developing a GIS application with learning intentions. Focusing on the challenges discovered in every aspect of the development process have resulted in a web based GIS application. This application have further been used in a implementation process involving students i a student workshop. The workshop was used to evaluate how the previous challenges have been avoided and to locate new ones.
