- Adjust and operate surveying instruments such as prisms, theodolites, and electronic distance-measuring equipment.
- Compile information necessary to stake projects for construction, using engineering plans.
- Run rods for benches and cross-section elevations.
- Position and hold the vertical rods, or targets, that theodolite operators use for sighting to measure angles, distances, and elevations.
- Record survey measurements and descriptive data, using notes, drawings, sketches, and inked tracings.
- Perform calculations to determine earth curvature corrections, atmospheric impacts on measurements, traverse closures and adjustments, azimuths, level runs, and placement of markers.
- Conduct surveys to ascertain the locations of natural features and man-made structures on the Earth's surface, underground, and underwater, using electronic distance-measuring equipment and other surveying instruments.
- Search for section corners, property irons, and survey points.
