Instrument Operators help surveyors in the field on teams known as survey parties. A typical survey party has a party chief and one or more surveying technicians. The party chief, either a surveyor or a senior surveying technician, leads day-to-day work activities. After data is collected by the survey party, surveying technicians help process the data by entering the data into computers.

Instrument Operators typically do the following:

Visit sites to record survey measurements and other descriptive data

Operate surveying instruments, such as electronic distance-measuring equipment (robotic total stations), to collect data on a location

Set out stakes and marks to conduct a survey

Search for previous survey points, such as old stone markers

Enter the data from surveying instruments into computers, either in the field or in an office
