What is Land Surveying?

Land Surveying is the essential process of measuring, valuing and protecting any of the world’s physical assets -- whether it’s a skyscraper or a forest. 

Combining detective work with high-tech field measurements and computer-aided drafting, Texas land surveyors are an integral component in land development and growth across the state. 

This includes tasks such as boundary surveys, topographic mapping and construction staking. Surveying is an exciting career choice that can give you the chance to earn an excellent salary, travel, work in the outdoors and work on a multitude of different and interesting projects. 

As a surveyor, your services will be in demand like no other profession. And whether you wish to work for an existing surveying or engineering company, a government agency such as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) or start your own land surveying business, the sky's the limit for the Texas land surveyor.
