In 1958, the Army Corps of Engineers was responsible for the intelligence related to the surface of the earth, excluding the oceans and seas. Those responsibilities were discharged by subordinate organizations and contractors under the directions of the Intelligence and Mapping division. Engineer Intelligence Guides (EIGS) were prepared “to provide orientation, direction, and instruction in the field of Engineer intelligence.”
This guide was prepared to give instructions for preparing specialized maps containing information showing impediments to cross-country movement. Appendix I, an example of a CCM map, was created by adding an overlay on a sheet from the US Army Map Service topographic map for German at the scale of 1:100,000.
It contains a lengthy distribution list of officials and organizations within the Army interested in military engineering.
