Does this work interest you? If so, you should prepare for it by
taking plenty of math and science courses in high school. Take
algebra, geometry, and trigonometry to become comfortable making
different calculations. Earth science, chemistry, and physics
classes should also be helpful. Geography will help you learn about
different locations, their characteristics, and cartography.
Benefits from taking mechanical drawing and other drafting classes
include an increased ability to visualize abstractions, exposure to
detailed work, and an understanding of perspectives. Taking
computer science classes will prepare you for working with
technical surveying equipment.
