High School

Take math and science courses. Be sure to include algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, which will help you to become comfortable with making different calculations. Earth science, chemistry, and physics classes are also useful. Geography will help you learn about different locations, their characteristics, and cartography. Mechanical drawing and other drafting classes are beneficial for learning how to visualize abstractions, gaining exposure to detailed work, and understanding perspectives. Computer science classes are also good preparation for working with technical surveying equipment.
