GIS (Geographic Information System) usability is one of the most significant factors of government sectors like the ministry of environment, planning, forestry, fisheries and so on. In this paper, the authors present a methodology for evaluating the usability of GIS software. They demonstrate how to find out the severity ratings of problems in GIS software. A sample GIS user Interface prototype is designed to scrutinize usability to discover potential problems. Based on the study, experience, and observation, this paper also provides a number of general usability evaluation guidelines for GIS software.
