Basically a chart shows which parts of the unit train in what areas and on what days.

The title of the book translates as:
major field exercises
- Maneuver Ordinance -
The heading for the chart says:
for the major field exercises of the ...th Army Corps
That chart is not an actual schedule for real exercises, but an example for how such a schedule should look. (Hence, no references to actual locations and units, but entries such as "N. Training Grounds", "Cavalry Division A.", "near B." etc.)
Bestimmungen means "provisions" so I guess this should be interpreted as guidance or guidlines.
Groesseren means "large" therefore major and Trueppenubungen is one of those mavellous German compound words; Trueppen meaning "Troops" therefore perhaps "military" and Uebungen means "training" as in excercises etc. Manoever Ordnung means "excercise" as in manoeuvres and Ordnung means "Order" as in instructions etc.
So, basically it is about how to run major field training execises.
I hope this helps.
