Geodetic Engineers, also known as Geodetic Surveyors measure large areas of the Earth's surface using satellite observations, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), light detection and ranging (LIDAR), or other precision instruments. They scientifically and methodically process data presented on graphs, plans, maps, charts, and documents.
Duties and Tasks:
Gathering data on-site using surveying instruments
Conduct topological surveys to determine ground elevation dependent grids, geodetic grids, property boundaries, terrain, and elevation
Prepare survey data and survey sheet elevation
Calculate the exact horizontal and vertical position of points on the Earth's surface
Verify mathematical accuracy of collected survey data
Assess quality of control data to determine the need for additional survey data to be used for engineering, construction, or other projects
Ability to use surveying and mapping equipment (graduated rods, transits, levels, theodolites, fathometers, electronic distance meters, global positioning systems, etc.)
Computer aided design (CAD) software
Map creation software
Blueprint/drawing specifications creation and interpretation
Solid knowledge in geography
Highly skilled in mathematics and physics
Critical thinking - using logic to identify strengths and weaknesses of plans, explore alternative solutions, and come up with different approaches to problems
Good spatial orientation and depth perception
Attention to detail
Personnel management - ability to motivate and direct people as they work through problems
Good communication skills – written and verbal
All applicants for registration for the practice of Geodetic Engineering are required to undergo and pass a written technical exam (Article IV, Section 11, RA 8560).
The Geodetic Engineers Licensure Examination is conducted by the Professional Regulation Commission once a year on October. For more details, click here.
