So these days obviously in the sort of 3D-modeling world of BIM and all the other systems that we have out there, there's a lot of the time when we're doing these 3D models showing the lay of the land using other systems other than contour lines, and that's all fine, that's good, that's a useful and a great thing, a tool that we have available to us, but when it comes to code officials, when it comes to sort of the typical earth-moving excavation setup where folks are standing out in the field, looking at a sheet of paper, trying to know exactly where to push the dirt around, almost always it'll come down to a contour plan. There's something about the sort of ease of the 2D drawing, and seeing the full level of complicated shapes, and the drainage systems, and the, like, it's all there, and is one, simple, straightforward drawing. So even if you're modeling it in other ways, that's great for those moments, but there will be a moment when you're probably gonna wanna bring it back to some sort of very straightforward contour plan type understanding.
