Land Surveying is crucial to responsible land development. Land Surveyors work with engineers, architects and builders to produce precise descriptions (surveys and maps) of surface features of the Earth. Land Surveyors perform a variety of vital tasks such as boundary surveys, topographic mapping and construction staking. Many people think that surveyors only conduct fieldwork. Surveyors can choose from many specialties and get involved at many stages of a project.
Sometimes a surveyor may work in the field and then deliver the data to a surveyor who works in the office. The office-based surveyor analyzes the data, creates maps and other documents. Land surveying is a career field in high demand throughout industry, government and the private sector. As a land surveyor you will provide services for planned communities, schools, shopping centers, highway projects and more.
