Surveyors carry out surveys on properties. Their main aim is to establish property boundaries and provide data that is used in projects related to map-making, engineering, and construction. As part of their job, surveyors measures distances between points on, below and above the Earth's surface, using highly sophisticated technology. They also research land and survey records to determine land titles and official boundaries for leases, deeds, and other legal documents.
Anyone wishing to pursue a career as a surveyor must have a bachelor's degree in a field related to civil engineering, geology or forestry.
