GIS is an application-driven and technology-guided specialty and it has become an important part of informational technology industry. The purpose of GIS talent education is to provide the talented person (theory-oriented and technique-oriented) for the digital society. So it is obviously market-driven. The multi-level, diversification and socialization of GIS application need multi-objective, multi-gradient and large-scale GIS talent education. The college is the dominating education department in China. So the college education modes have a strong impact on the quality of GIS talents. The curriculum design embodies intrinsic request of education goals and modes. So it should be flexible, diverse and multi-level in order to achieve the established goals. In this paper, we analyze the present situation of GIS education both home and abroad, find out the problems and their corresponding reasons of China GIS education, then put forward three goals of domestic GIS education and five education modes ("3+5" education modes). At last, we argue the basic frame of the curriculum design.
