Surveyors, Cartographers, Photogrammetrists, and Surveying Technicians
Surveyors, cartographers, and photogrammetrists are responsible for measuring and mapping the earth’s surface.
Surveying technicians work with land surveyors to measure the shape, contour, location, and other features of land.
Measuring, mapping, managing and modeling information concerning the earth's physical and man-made features are the key areas of Surveying, Cartography and Geographic Information Science (GIScience).

Geologists in the Parks
Many of our natural parks are defined by their spectacular geology, such as the landforms of the Grand Canyon and the magnificent fossils in Dinosaur National Monument. Some show just how dynamic geology is, like the geysers in Yellowstone National Park.
Careers in Earth Science: Geologist
Geologists are the 'field hands' of earth science: without ground-based observation to confirm or expand on space-based tools, we would have an incomplete or even inaccurate picture of our planet.
Geologists, who study the composition, processes and history of the earth, can spend days and weeks out among the rocks and stones, charting, mapping, measuring, digging, and collecting samples.
My name's Lynn, and I'm a coastal geologist.
That means I study coastlines and how they change over time. I try to help communities deal with erosion as coastlines move and change.
