Think You Could Be a Surveyor?

  • Do you have an interest in math? People who enjoy surveying also enjoy math –
    specifically geometry and trigonometry. The field also attracts people interested in geology, forestry,
    and history.
  • Do you enjoy being outdoors? Much of surveying requires someone to research and find boundaries on the property itself.
  • Are you interested in technology? Surveying today uses cutting-edge technology to collect and analyze data with GPS equipment, laser scanners and robotic total stations. UAVs (or unmanned aerial vehicles) are also on the rise in the profession to map terrain.
  • Do you want a wide variety of options? The surveying profession allows for a broad range of paths from research, business ownership, mapmakers, computer specialists and even crime or accident investigators.
