maps were in color

Response to Maps

in part because of the complexity. For example, for relatively unskilled users, a lot of data are hard to decipher without it. Information was color-coded - contours and other surface shape data in brown, water in blue, vegetation in green, culture (man-made stuff) in black. The system was also internally logical for other tactically significant information. For example, on US maps a bridge known to have been destroyed or structurally compromised was marked with a blue X (water obstacle) superimposed over the bridge symbol (black).

Maps are like drugs to officers - they get the shakes without one.
