Abstract : This report presents the results of a detailed Air Force Occupational Survey of the Cartographic and Geodetic Officer Utilization Field (AFS 57XX) and the enlisted Geodetic Surveyor Career Ladder (AFS 222X0). Data were collected from 64 Cartographic and Geodetic Officers, representing 91 percent of the assigned strength, and 87 Geodetic Specialists, representing 85 percent of their assigned strength. Analysis of the job structure of the AFS 57XX and AFSC 222X0 fields identified seven job groups. The jobs were categorized into plans and requirements, contract monitoring, management, training, surveying, and data preparation. The officer jobs reflect substantial variety, while the majority of enlisted personnel performed as geodetic surveyors. A comparison of tasks performed with the AFR 36-1 (for officers) and AFR 39-1 (for enlisted personnel) Specialty Descriptions revealed reasonably accurate summaries of the jobs actually performed. Comparison of job and task data with plans of instruction indicated substantial portions of the officer course in need of considerable review, while the enlisted course generally appeared appropriate for the jobs graduates performed.
