The spatial analysis curriculum design for higher geography education is still challenging. Based on the review of spatial analysis and related researches since the beginning of 1990s, the authors classify the knowledge of spatial analysis into seven relatively independent groups: the nature of geospatial data, spatial data visualization, geometric reasoning of spatial data, descriptive and exploring spatial data analysis, spatial interpolation and geostatistics, spatial statistics, and spatial modeling. Considering the knowledge structure of spatial analysis national and international, the authors discuss the design and implementation of the fundamental curriculum, i.e. Introduction to Spatial Analysis, and related advanced curriculums of spatial data analysis for China's higher geography institutions. Detailed objectives, contents, and course schedule of the introductory curriculum are recommended.
