In the office you will process the field data that you or survey teams have acquired and develop that information into existing site conditions and topographic maps.  You will research and calculate parcel boundaries, and develop parcel and record of survey maps, ALTA Surveys, corner records and other project data, as directed by the project Professional Land Surveyor managing the project.  In addition, you will provide construction survey calculations and prepare reports for contractors.
