This article was set out to be a new attempt at the teaching and research of
“Shi-ji”. It was supposed to create maps for the sections and chapters in “Shi-ji”
relating to powerful generals with the assistance of GIS so that the readers could better
understand the spatial movements and use of military strategy and tactics while reading
paragraphs about war in “Shi-ji”. The method won acclaims from most students in the
preliminary classroom experiment, who showed the wish that more maps be created in
the future to improve the teaching and research of “Shi-Ji”.
