SurveyorsWorkers in this unit group survey the earth's surface, natural topography and man-made structures, and underground areas, and prepare maps and charts. Their functions include: surveying land surfaces to determine boundaries and exact locations, delineate topographic features and otherwise measure land areas for such purposes as mapmaking and construction work; surveying mines and delineating surface and underground features to control direction and extent of mining; surveying sea, river and lake beds for such purposes as chart making, determining navigable channels and planning construction of marine structures; analysing aerial photographs to prepare or revise topographic maps and charts. Quantity surveyor is classified in 0-33.20 and valuation surveyor in unit group 4-43.

031

DraughtsmenWorkers in this unit group prepare technical drawings and maps and copy drawings and paintings onto printing plates. Their functions include: preparing working drawings from designers' sketches and specifications for such purposes as manufacture and installation of machinery and equipment or for construction of buildings, bridges, dams, roads and other civil engineering projects; preparing topographical, political, economic, nautical and other maps and charts from survey and other data; drawing technical illustrations for reference works, brochures and technical manuals dealing with assembly, installation, operation, maintenance and repair of machinery and other equipment; copying drawings and paintings onto stone or metal plates for printing.
