WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A SURVEYOR?
Surveying involves the measurement, mapping and analysis of the environment and requires the use of specialised equipment and software.
In the field, this cutting edge technology includes laser scanners, robotic guidance stations and global navigation satellite systems. In the office, surveyors and mapping professionals draft plans using a CAD system, to create graphics, download and analyse data and prepare equipment for use on location.

They collaborate with a wide range of other professionals such as Architects, Engineers and Land Developers providing vital information for many local projects like the new Adelaide Oval, RAH Hospital and the Southern Expressway.
