Think Surveying is Just About Measuring? Think Again!

Think Surveying is Just About Measuring? Think Again!

When most people think of surveying, they imagine precise measurements and high-tech equipment. But there's a lot more to the job than meets the eye. Sure, the tools of the trade are always reliable, but the unpredictable world around us adds a whole new level of complexity.

A Day in the Life of a Surveyor:

🚗 Dodging Motorists: Many drivers mistake us for speed enforcers, making our roadside tasks even more challenging.

🚶‍♂️ Navigating Curious Pedestrians: We often find ourselves explaining that we're not invading their personal space, just trying to do our job.

🐄 Avoiding Livestock: Yes, even cows and other animals can have a curiosity for our expensive equipment, requiring us to be ever vigilant.

📸 Not Paparazzi: We frequently have to assure passersby that we’re not there to take their picture, just to survey the land.

🔒 Guarding Our Gear: The constant risk of theft means we’re always playing a game of "guard the gear."

Next time you see a surveyor, remember: we're not just measuring land, we're navigating an obstacle course filled with human and animal interactions.

Surveyors, what other daily challenges do you face?
