List Your Surveying Company inside the State You Survey In

This hub is our first draft of the upcoming Land Surveying Companies Directory which will be released sometime in February of 2020.   Listing your company inside this directory is currently free. Simply find your state and start a new post with a title that starts with the City, State you are listing in.  You must first click here to follow the USA Companies Hub before posting, otherwise you will not see the buttons to post.

Please note: If you're a land surveyor based in the United States, we would like to understand more about the differences and similarities between state associations, boards, laws and practices.  Please tell us about those details inside THIS HUB for general USA Land Surveying Discussions.  You are also encouraged to join and post topics inside the hub dedicated to your state.  Please join the group forum for your state and start a discussion today! And by all means, bring this up at the next conference or chapter meeting in your state.

My First Day On The Job!

I recently started as an entry-level surveyor technician here in Huntsville Alabama. There is no opportunity for me to learn how to use the tablet thingy or to see any educational articles provided by the company I work for. I would like to learn what machine operator means. I hear that they are in dire need of more machine operators. So far all that I have been doing is holding the rod to be shot by the level, hammering hubs and stakes into the ground, and writing the offset, radius, elevation, and cut or fill (provided by the gun operator) onto the stakes. I want to know everything i can learn about this position so that I may become a valuable asset to this company. 


I know that if i am writing back of curb offsets, then they need to be at top of curb. If i am writing end of pavement, then they need to be at finish grade. If i am doing pipe, then the center line box needs to be at the invert. That is all i have learned so far.


Please tell me where to start learning more about this job!
