Motro Reflection

There is a ton to learn about maps and the weight that they carry, especially in military negotiation. I never imagined that a map could create so much tension and elongate a negotiation as it was described by Motro. Before reading this article, I assumed maps were just supplementary information in a negotiation process but this article opened my eyes to their value and importance in military negotiations. The use of maps as a negotiating tool is incredibly important and must be used wisely if it is to benefit the negotiation process. By manipulating maps in order to convey certain information, the cartographers can either expedite or elongate the process!
