    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    Surveying had become popular during the colonial administration. The British believed that to have an effective administration, it was necessary to understand the country thoroughly. By the early nineteenth century, detailed surveys had been conducted to map the entire country. Many other surveys were carried out, including zoological, forest, anthropological, archaeological, and botanical surveys. In addition, revenue surveys were conducted in the villages. To understand how to administer a region, work was done to recognise the cropping pattern, local histories, fauna, flora, soil conditions, and topography. At the end of the 19th century, a survey was conducted every tenth year. Census, which was conducted every year, recorded important information like religion and caste of people, population area wise, languages spoken, etc.
