Ensure appropriate survey is carried out to specifications on land and roads with appropriate designs supervising the preparation of all data, charts, plots, maps, records, and documents related to surveys.
Prepare and maintain sketches, maps, reports, and legal descriptions of surveys in order to describe, certify, and assume liability for work performed.
Verify the accuracy of survey data, including measurements and calculations conducted at survey sites.
Record the results of surveys, including the shape, contour, location, elevation, and dimensions of land or water features.
Calculate heights, depths, relative positions, property lines, and other characteristics of terrain.
Plan and conduct ground surveys designed to establish baselines, elevations, and other geodetic measurements.
Search legal records, survey records, and land titles in order to obtain information about property boundaries in areas to be surveyed.
Coordinate findings with the work of engineering and architectural personnel, clients, and others concerned with projects.
Adjust surveying instruments in order to maintain their accuracy.
Establish fixed points for use in making maps, using geodetic and engineering instruments.
Determine longitudes and latitudes of important features and boundaries in survey areas, using theodolites, transits, levels, and satellite-
based global positioning systems (GPS).
Analyze survey objectives and specifications in order to prepare survey proposals or to direct others in survey proposal preparation.
Compute geodetic measurements and interpret survey data in order to determine positions, shapes, and elevations of geomorphic and topographic features.
Develop criteria for survey methods and procedures.
Develop criteria for the design and modification of survey instruments.
Survey bodies of water in order to determine navigable channels and to secure data for construction of breakwaters, piers, and other marine structures.
Determine specifications for photographic equipment to be used for aerial photography, as well as altitudes from which to photograph terrain.
