University education should highlight the cultivation of students’ capability to make them qualified for meeting the social market requirements. University students, who major in GIS, in addition to abilities and qualities equipped generally, are supposed to have abilities in GIS basic theory and cutting-edge technologies, GIS software operation and data collection and processing, spatial data modeling and analysis, independent learning as well as GIS scientific research and innovation. The paper takes the spatial analysis of Fujian telecommunications consumption data as the example, attempts a new perspective that introduces ESDA, an analytic method, into the research of telecommunications consumption, thus combining perceptual and conceptual knowledge, qualitative and quantitative analysis, so as to not only improve the competency of GIS majors, but also cultivate their spatial analysis capability, develop favorable thinking mode, therefore laying a solid basis for their future study and work.
