Myth No. 1: GIS costs too much money to get into
from The American Surveyor
Before dispelling this myth, we need to have a discussion of what makes up a robust GIS system. There are three parts: a database, a mapping engine and, finally, a linkage. Each of these three parts is vital to making a GIS a viable solution for the needs of a land surveying business. And while the database and the mapping engine each have advantages to implementation, there is no magic until the linkage is brought to bear.
