Knowledge and expertise of military geography is a critical factor in analyzing the enemy. Military geography of a specific region is the discipline regarding geographic aspects that affect military planning and the execution of operations. In addition, this discipline is divided into several sub-classes of study: cultural, economic, political, and physical geography. Each one of the areas of study establishes the base for knowledge of a region or area. The more expertise of a geographic region, the better suited an analyst will be in order to analyze raw intelligence and apply it to an analysis. Outcomes regarding past U.S. conflicts have been determined by regional knowledge of military geography and have ultimately formulated standards of knowledge for today’s intelligence to be successful.
