Land surveyors play an important role in building and land development, starting with the planning and design of land subdivisions through to the final construction of roads, utilities, and landscaping. A land survey maps the features of a parcel of land, which may include the boundaries and corners, the topography, and the location of buildings or other improvements on the land. Surveyors frequently work outdoors, carry equipment over uneven terrain, and maintain their equipment and vehicle. Surveyors will become skilled at using distance-measuring equipment, land-information computer systems, and perform calculations to determine angles, elevation, and distance.
