Since 5000 BC, surveying has served the political, economic and social needs of our society by defining and locating property boundaries, features and improvements.

 In Wisconsin, the original survey of our lands into townships, ranges and sections began in 1831, from the border with Illinois and northward until completion in about 1865.

 From the Egyptian "rope stretchers," ancient surveying measurement tools have progressed to the chain and compass, to the transit and tape, to electronic distance and directional instruments, to the current GPS satellite receivers for modern surveying and mapping.

 Computation and mapping tools have also progressed from manual devices and methods to electronic computers for calculations, data bases and computer aided drafting (CAD).
