After Peano gave an arithmetic construction, Hilbert developed a geometric construction for space-filling curves. This paper describes the key idea of Hilbert's construction, here called 'the nested-squares criterion,' implicit in Hilbert's writing but, once explicated, generalizes to a whole class of space-filling curves that correspond to a special class of rook's walks enumerated by Mobius 150 years ago!
