Understanding the Role of a Land Surveyor

As defined by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), land surveyors, categorized under the broader profession of Surveyors, play a pivotal role in providing precise measurements for property boundaries. Key responsibilities include:

  • Measuring distances and angles on, above, and below the Earth’s surface.
  • Utilizing reference points to determine the exact location of significant features.
  • Researching land records, survey records, and titles.
  • Marking and documenting legal property lines to prevent disputes.
