And yes, they are also “the guy by the road looking through that tripod thing.”
What do surveyors do?
Surveyors work in all environments and touch every kind of project. They:
Map the ocean floors
Measure beach erosion
Stake out houses, commercial buildings, bridges, and roadways
Facilitate industrial design and construction
Recover lost boundary lines and property corners
Understand working among local wildlife while preparing maps for environmental studies
Understand when to run like crazy from local wildlife
Survey with unmanned aerial vehicles (drones)
Design, build, and refine highly sensitive measuring instruments and data processing software
Why are surveyors important?
Surveyors provide the data that decision-makers need to make smart choices, such as:
Safeguarding new homes from the potentially damaging effects of floods through careful site selection
Assessing the damage caused by natural and manmade disasters and enabling public officials to direct aid and recovery efforts
Protecting vulnerable plants and animals by identifying the locations of threatened and endangered species
Conserving valuable natural resources like clean drinking water
Locating buried utilities to prevent damage by new construction
Creating accessible buildings, sidewalks, and trails by avoiding or mitigating steep grades
If you know a surveyor, thank them for the work they do to make our homes, neighborhoods, and wider communities possible. If you need a surveyor, reach out to me, WithersRavenel’s Geomatics Director Matthew Crawford, at (919) 535-5195 or email@example.com to discuss your project needs.
