22 Tu Mu, 803 – 852, Wei Liao Tzu “The commander must acquaint himself beforehand with the maps so that he knows dangerous places for chariots and carts, where the water is too deep for wagons; passes in famous mountains, the principal rivers, the locations of highlands and hills; where rushes, forests, and reeds are luxuriant; the road distances; the size of cities and towns; well-know cities and abandoned ones; and where there are flourishing orchards. All this must he know, as well as the way boundaries run in and out. All these facts the general must store in his mind.” Should have had WaterMaps!
