GIS - Greatest Infrastructure Schema or Get It Surveyed?

GIS - Greatest Infrastructure Schema or Get It Surveyed?  It should be no secret by now that GIS is  beneficial to the Land Surveyor and that Land Surveying is beneficial to GIS.  In this apparent symbiosis of professions that generates confusion among some professionals and many the layman (your client?) there remains to this day "The Chicken and The Egg".  Which came first?  Of course, Land Surveying, after all the rope-stretchers in Biblical Egypt had no GIS.  But which came first when a…
