Definition of Surveying
Does it explain how being a 'Professional Land Surveyor' enables him to identify, date, decipher and interpret historic Graffiti?
Remember now, no swearing !
"Surveying or land surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes.
To accomplish their objective, surveyors use elements of mathematics (geometry and trigonometry), physics, engineering and law."
As I read back through Arcadia posts, it seems a lot of people with far less qualifications are deemed 'experts' here, either by their own evaluation,, or by others here. They may have a background as clerks, or housewives, or school teachers, or bus drivers, yet somehow they become "experts" about ancient aliens, or bloodlines, or genealogy (French in particular) , or secret codes hidden in art and sculpture...or the pyramids, or Templar Treasures, or Magdalenes in oar-less boats, or skulls...or synchronicity, or hidden graves...no offense if I missed one of you.....it's a long list.
The list of "experts" here is quite impressive! If so many lesser educated people here can be "experts" then why not
a 'Professional Land Surveyor'! I mean, he brings no more, nor less, credibility to the table of "experts" than any other.
How do we define "expert"? Expert compared to whom? To what standard?
Just making an observation and asking.
P.S. I didn't swear. I didn't go off-topic. I didn't use caps or colored fonts....I am behaving myself, as usual.
