Job Description for Land Surveyor

Most of the time land surveyors work for engineering, land development or construction companies. They perform boundary surveys, primary surveys, construction staking and other relevant tasks. They must make accurate measurements and determine property boundaries accurately, as well as read construction drawings and ask architects assigned to the project any relevant questions regarding construction drawings. Land surveyors must provide data related to location, elevation, gravitation and other metrics, and they may be required to use global positioning systems (GPS) to determine longitudes and latitudes of relevant boundaries and features of the locations being surveyed. Some land surveyors use helicopters for land surveying, and they may need to train assistants to perform surveys and draft maps.
