of the situation. Without picture being formed in the mind of a person, It will be like a dark

circle. So now days people are emphasizing more on the things which give them proper

understanding of actual thing. Like in case of drawings the 3D formats of drawing are more

preferred than the drafting which were previously used. It gives complete information in…

Land Surveyors United 10000 Members Strong!

5800 static collection to TSCe
