AND THE INSTITUTION OF SURVEYORS, AUSTRALIA
|What is Surveying?
What do a murder, an earthquake, a
satellite and a ‘’for sale’’ sign have in common?
If you think surveyors just hammer
pegs into the ground - think again.
Modern surveyors help police at crime
predict earthquakes, they
use computer imaging and satellites to monitor environmental change,
they map the ocean
floor – they
are women and men- and
of course, they
tell you where your land ends and your neighbour’s begins.
They also get great
money and travel the world.
What’s more - Australia can’t get
enough of them – we don’t have enough young surveyors to meet
Since the beginning of recorded
history, people have needed to measure and map their world.
Surveyors are the
professional experts in land measurement, information and
is the career
which leads you anywhere.
It gets you out of the office and
into the wildest corners of the globe.
But if technology is your passion,
modern surveying is witnessing an explosion in high-tech data
management. Job opportunities are booming.

Excellence in Surveying Awards.
Surveyors transform ideas into plans,
and plans into reality.
But what do they actually do?
