Typical Employers of Surveyors


Surveying and Geomatics is one of the fastest expanding global markets. The discipline is driven by variables such as advances in technology, such as geographical information systems (GIS) and global navigation satellite systems, and maintains its role in land law and other socio-economic areas. Worldwide, the changing nature of mapping and spatial data management means there is significant demand for chartered land/geomatic surveyors.

Land/geomatics surveying skills are required in a multitude of organisations in both the private and public sectors. Employment opportunities exist in:
  • mining companies;
  • engineering contractors and consultancies;
  • specialist surveying and geomatics companies that provide services for areas such as property development, construction and heritage management;
  • utilities companies;
  • geophysics consultancy companies;
  • construction companies;
  • cartographic publishers;
  • mapping companies, including those working on relatively unmapped areas of the world;
  • local authorities and central government;
  • government agencies;
  • Ordnance Survey (OS) .

Some employers have only a small number of surveyors on their staff.

How to use Forums
Our forums on Land Surveyors United are here to be used as much for finding help with problems in the field as the are for you to express your opinions on anything that has to do with land surveying in general. Feel free to share anything that is on your mind, as long as it isn't meant to damage another member's reputation. Please keep it clean and help insure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of being part of a community that grows together.

We are committed to allowing freedom of expression for all of our members, and that includes maintaining a safe space for people with opposing views to express themselves. We get posts from all over the country and even the globe, so needless to say, people come with different viewpoints on lad surveying practices and processes. We see this diversity and variety as a real strength-- dialogue and debate are an integral part of the educational process, as well as an important tool in exploring different sides of complex issues.

All Community Hubs inside the community have their own forum for asking specific questions to other surveyors, by location, equipment type, etc.
