Description of activities

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in gathering, interpreting, and mapping geophysical data. Establishments in this industry often specialize in locating and measuring the extent of subsurface resources, such as oil, gas, and minerals, but they may conduct surveys for engineering purposes. Establishments in this industry use a variety of surveying techniques depending on the purpose of the survey including magnetic surveys, gravity surveys, seismic surveys, or electrical and electromagnetic surveys. To find out more visit the home page. There are NAICS codes for other industries.

Cross references to alternate NAICS codes

Establishments primarily engaged in taking core samples, drilling test wells, or other mine development activities (except geophysical surveying and mapping) on a contract basis for others are classified in industry 21311, support activities for mining.

Description of activities

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in applying physical laws and principles of engineering in the design, development, and utilization of machines, materials, instruments, structures, processes, and systems. The assignments undertaken by these establishments may involve any of the following activities: provision of advice, preparation of feasibility studies, preparation of preliminary and final plans and designs, provision of technical services during the construction or installation phase, inspection and evaluation of engineering projects, and related services.

Cross references to alternate NAICS codes

Establishments primarily engaged in planning and designing computer systems that integrate computer hardware, software, and communication technologies are classified in U.S. industry 541512 (computer systems design services). Performing surveying and mapping services of the surface of the earth, including the sea floor are classified in industry 541370 (surveying and mapping (except geophysical) services). Gathering, interpreting, and mapping geophysical data are classified in industry 541360 (geophysical surveying and mapping services).

Creating and developing designs and specifications that optimize the use, value, and appearance of products are classified in industry 541420 (industrial design services). Providing advice and assistance to others on environmental issues, such as the control of environmental contamination from pollutants, toxic substances, and hazardous materials are classified in industry 541620 (environmental consulting services). Both the design and construction of buildings, highways, and other structures or in managing construction projects are classified in sector 23 (construction, according to the type of project).

Geophysical surveying and mapping services listed under other professions

While NAICS Code 541360 is the primary code for geophysical surveying and mapping services, other disciplines may look for  geophysical services through lessor known SIC codes or NAICS Codes. NAICS Code 541360 Geophysical Surveying and Mapping Services list the following services as part of this code: Aerial geophysical surveying services, Electrical geophysical surveying services, Electromagnetic geophysical surveying services, Geological surveying services, Geophysical mapping services, Geophysical surveying services, Gravity geophysical surveying services, Magnetic geophysical surveying services, Mapping services, geophysical, Radioactive geophysical surveying services, Remote sensing geophysical surveying services, Seismic geophysical surveying services, and Surveying services.

Summary of alternate NAICS and SIC codes

Mining, oil, and gas use these NAICS codes.

NAICS Code 213113 Support Activities for Coal Mining

NAICS Code 213114 Support Activities for Metal Mining

NAICS Code 213115 Support Activities for Nonmetallic Minerals (except Fuels) Mining

NAICS Code 213112 Support Activities for Oil and Gas Operations

Though these codes are well defined, the wording is redundant. Consequently, the following informally reworded summary attempts to provide a general idea of how these codes are used.

Description of common activities

This U.S. industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in providing support activities, on a fee or contract basis, a) NAICS Code 213113 for coal mining (Exploration for coal is included in this industry. Exploration includes traditional prospecting methods, such as taking core samples and making geological observations at prospective sites.) b) NAICS Code 213114 for the mining and quarrying of metallic minerals and for the extraction of metal ores, and c) NAICS Code 213115 for the mining and quarrying of nonmetallic minerals (except fuel) and for the extraction of nonmetallic minerals (except site preparation and related construction activities). Exploration for these minerals is included in this industry. Exploration (except geophysical surveying and mapping services) includes traditional prospecting methods, such as taking core samples and making geological observations at prospective sites.

Cross references to additional NAICS codes

Establishments primarily engaged in performing geophysical surveying and mapping services for metallic minerals, and for nonmetallic minerals on a contract or fee basis are classified in Industry 541360 (Geophysical Surveying and Mapping Services). Operating coal mines or quarries on a contract or fee basis–are classified in Industry 21211, Coal Mining, based on the type of coal mined Operating metallic mineral mines or quarries on a contract or fee basis–are classified in Industry Group 2122, Metal Ore Mining, based on the type of ore mined. Operating nonmetallic mineral mines or quarries on a contract or fee basis–are classified in Industry Group 2123, Nonmetallic Mineral Mining and Quarrying, based on the type of mineral mined or quarried; and Site preparation and related construction activities–are classified in Industry 238910, Site Preparation Contractors.
