Surveying is the mapping and measurement of an environment (often a construction site) using specialised technology, equipment and mathematics. Surveying contractors work out in the field, using technology like GPS, taking photos and making computations. They then use sophisticated software to draft maps and plans.

Land surveyors use their skills to mark out land by using recorded documents like deeds, historical evidence and current surveying standards and practices. These surveys are often used for mortgages, condominiums and titles.
Construction surveyors are as experienced as land surveyors, only they specialise in the construction industry. This type of surveying is used to establish where man-made objects like pipes, buildings, bridges and highways should be located, and these surveyors also help ensure that projects like roads have been finished in terms of dimensional measurements like length.
One of the main tasks of construction surveyors is ensuring that a building or other project will be placed on solid, stable ground.
