Petra Beilhack

Surveying group manager at the rural surveying office Traunstein

What do you like in particular concerning your job?
For me it has been always important to get a job which combines my affinity to mathematics and my affection towards nature. Hence surveying was one of a few professions which matched my preferences. My dream came true when I started studying and working at the rural surveying office. I am free in planning and performing my surveying projects.

How does one of your typical working days look like?
About three quarters of all working days, I am doing work outside in the field. That implies first of all doing property surveying which means establishing boundaries and property divisions. I conduct negotiations about the drawing of boundaries with the property owners and record everything in a special cadastrial protocol. To do surveying, I am supported by an employee, by an expert in land register called "Feldgeschworener" and modern techniques like tachymeter, laser tracker, GPS and by a robust field PC which can be handled with wind and rain.

How do you feel as a woman within a profession dominated by men?
or my generation it was not common to become a geodesist as a woman. Women had to face strange regards from the male colleagues – especially in the beginning as intern and applicant. But that is not an issue anymore. I am strongly established and admitted. Moreover I think that women have more capacity than men to conciliate especially arguments about boundary lines in field.

Additionally I am thankful to be able to combine my job and my family due to flexible part-time work.
