Description of the skill

A surveyor works in varied tasks. They may work in private companies, municipal organisations or state institutions. The surveyor may work independently or lead a group taking measurements. The work tasks may be related to measurements in different work environments and the processing of measurements or data models. In addition to traditional measurement methods, data is increasingly produced by collecting point clouds with different methods and by utilising images taken with different tools.

Surveyors also carry out research and analysis tasks related to ground surveys. The surveyor’s tasks may be related to forming a property or the maintenance of many different registers.
