Surveyors work at jobs where they have to make precise measurements in order to determine the boundaries of a particular property. If you are a surveyor, you would gather information about the shape and contour of the earth’s surface. That data would then be used for engineering, construction or map-making projects.
Surveyors often use the Global Positioning System (GPS), which is a system of satellites that can find reference points very precisely. Handheld GPS units as well as robotic total stations help surveyors collect relevant information about the terrain they are surveying. The collected data is then sent to a computer and later analyzed and interpreted by surveyors.
As a surveyor, you would need to measure distances and angles between points on the earth’s surface. This work would probably require travel to different jobs sites. You may have to research land records and titles as well as survey records to determine where boundary lines are located.
