Huang Shang (黃裳, 1146 - 1194) was a Chinese official, tutor, polymath, and cartographer of the Southern Song Dynasty. He is known for at least three maps, the Dili Tu (墬理圖) terrestrial map, the Tianwen tu (天文圖) star chart, and a third relief map now lost. It is likely he made others. Huang became the tutor of the Chinese prince, possibly Zhao Kuo, in 1190. He presented a map of the empire carved in wood to the prince - the Dili Tu. Huang intended for the Dili Tu to teach the value and importance of reuniting the empire which was split between the northern Chinese dynasties and the Southern Song sixty years earlier.
