<p>Spatial reasoning is a major source of difficulties for strategy game AIs. Qualitative spatial-reasoning techniques can help overcome these difficulties. This approach's potential advantages are more-expressive spatial representations, better communication of intent, better pathfinding, and reusable strategy libraries. Visual routines can help compute qualitative spatial descriptions for strategy games.</p>
