"It is a great profession. There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege."

-Herbert Hoover

Responsibility for the accuracy and consistency of the resulting GIS database, and for the appropriate selection, calibration, and operation of the required software and hardware, is assigned to a trained surveyor on each crew, the GIS Manager, and the Project Manager.
