Work Environment

Cartographers work in office settings with drafting tables and computer-mapping systems. Most cartographers never visit the locations that they are mapping, but many do fieldwork to collect and verify data used in creating maps. The average workweek is 35 to 40 hours, although longer hours are occasionally required if a mapping project is on a deadline.
