Frequently asked questions
What is a Land Surveyor?
Land Surveyors have a very important role in the construction and engineering world. Without land surveyors, quite simply nothing could be constructed or built accurately from roads to buildings to bridges.
Land Surveying is a very misunderstood profession by those who do not understand exactly what it is. Generally, to ascend to a highly paid position in any type of land surveying, you would require a minimum of a degree from a university but, in Australia you can still become a highly paid and be a highly skilled individual with only a diploma.
The biggest part of surveying is mathematics and having a strong understanding of spatial awareness in both 2d and 3d. The level of mathematics required to be a university qualified land surveyor is far greater than that of your typical civil engineer. A qualified land surveyor with experience across different types of land surveying will be required to be able to deal with all types of engineers, builders, town planners etc.
What makes a land surveyor special is that the surveyor will understand everyone else’s disciplines e.g. engineers plans or Architects drawings, but none of those disciplines will understand what the surveyor does or how we do it.
Land surveying is a challenging and complicated science. It comes with high risk for the surveyor and everything hinges on the surveyor’s decisions working in the field.
So, the next time you see your local land surveyor with his tripod set up on the side of a road, take time to appreciate everything they do. They make sure your roads and bridges are built to specification and that your boundaries and houses can be established in their right position. They make sure your subdivisions go through council allowing you to extend your wealth.
