Land Surveyor (Licensed)

Job Overview

Land Surveying is one of the oldest professions in the world. The first land surveys on record were completed nearly 3,000 years ago when Egyptian land surveyors subdivided the fertile land around the Nile River. The land surveyors were also tasked with re-marking the land after the annual flooding of the Nile River. Today land surveyors (Licensed) in the energy industry plan, direct and conduct legal surveys to determine and interpret the location of boundaries, buildings, structures and other natural and human-made features. You’re known for being accurate. If this sounds like you, look into a career as a licensed land surveyor.

Licensed land surveyors prepare and maintain cross-sectional drawings, plans, records and documents pertaining to these surveys. They use data generated from these surveys to calculate precise measurements relevant to the shape, contour, gravitation, location, elevation or dimension of land or land features on or near the earth’s surface for engineering, mapmaking, mining, land evaluation, construction and other purposes.

Land surveyors interact with engineers and architectural personnel and land-related professionals. They must be proficient at the use of field equipment such as total survey station, GPS/GNSS systems, Robotic Optical survey instruments or conventional theodolite instruments and other specialized systems such as aerial and satellite imagery collection and laser scanning. They are also required to use computationally intensive software for coordinate geometry, map creation, CAD systems, graphics or photo imaging software.
