A sub-skill linked to the profession. In a dig site area, using the ability will drop a "surveying level" (a tripod with a sort of telescope) and a marker with a red, yellow, or green light on the ground. Red means the find is more than 100 yards away, yellow means 50-100 yards, green means less than fifty. Survey within 5 yards of the find and it will appear.
- A "surveying level" is technically called a Dumpy level. Unlike real surveying, there is no measuring point or accompanying measuring part (tape measure or rod) at the target site, since it isn't really surveying.
