Frequently Asked Questions

How is an auto level used in surveying?

Surveyors use field books to record data and make notes while they’re on a job site. They often contain information about building locations and measurements, as well as any topographical data. They may also contain any astronomical observations that can be used to chart coordinates, boundary markings, and a number of other details that may be relevant. Many field books are built for durability and water resistance, so they can endure the harshest of job site conditions.

What is a field book used for?

A survey field book can be used to record data and make notes while a surveyor or engineer is at a particular job site, which can include any of the following:
  • Building locations and measurements.
  • Topographical data.
  • Astronomical observations that can be used for charting coordinates.
  • Boundary locations.
The durability and water resistance of a surveying field book allows it to withstand the harshest of job conditions, which makes it a great tool for professional surveyors and engineers.

What is a field journal?

Keeping a journal is an important part of any type of field work. And in many ways, it acts like a diary for scientists and engineers because it keeps track of information you have gathered while you’re on the field. As you work at a particular site, your field journal can give you a single place to store necessary information. Scientist may need to write measurements, data, observations, or information about specific specimens they have collections. But a surveyor or engineer may need to record measurements, draw quick sketches of a specific layout, or record any information related to a construction site.

What are the main types of field notes?

Field notes will generally have two main parts:
  • Descriptive Information — Any factual data you have recorded. This can include the time and date, the condition of the area, or any other data that’s relevant to what’s being observed.

  • Reflective Information — Any thoughts (or “reflections”) you have about the observations you have conducted. They can be ideas, questions, concerns, or any other related thoughts.

Field notes can also include sketches, diagrams, or other drawings that provide a visual depiction of what’s being observed.

What is a double-line field book?

A double-line field book is similar to its single-line counterpart, except it has a red line in the center, as well as two blue or red lines that are about 1.5 cm apart and are ruled down the center of each page. These spaces represent the chain line and are meant to record any changes that need to be kept separate.
