They will take measurements associated with the management of natural resources and mining activities and draw up plans by recording information, making calculations and plotting information into the required format. This is done either by hand or on a computer using a computer-aided design (CAD) programme. They will make maps showing features and associated information and will set out marks to locate construction activities. They will store data in geographic information systems (GIS) and undertake activities such as enquiries, reports and plot production and will operate and manage land information computer systems.
