Strategies • To collect all my data I went to google. When I converted all the heights I went to google conversions. When I wanted to know the heights I ask what is the height of so and so building. A box came up and said the height. If the box did not come up I used ask.com. When I wanted to know the year I went to google and ask what year did the so and so building constructed. Once again a box came up, if the box did not I would use ask.com.
