Survey reports are rewards for doing crafting writs (daily quests). They aren’t awarded every time you complete a writ, but often enough and are worth completing. The chance to receive a survey map is about 15% for Woodworking, Blacksmithing and Clothing, 30% for Enchanting, and 50% for Alchemy. Provisioning crafting writs don’t reward survey maps.
Survey maps essentially function the same as treasure maps. Once you have a survey report map you need to visit a designated area in a specific zone the survey report is for. Finding a location specified on the survey map will enable you to loot multiple resource nodes which all yield increased amount of materials you’d normally get from resource nodes.
You can find exact map locations and coordinates of resource nodes for all survey maps below. You can click the zone name in the table to display a map with exact locations!
Note: Jewelry Crafting survey report locations can be found in our Jewelry Crafting Guide, and on individual maps linked below.
Survey map coordinates for shared zones:
Tips: If you need an addon to display map coordinates in game, see Map Coordinates. Additionally, you can download the Lost Treasure addon which will simply put icons for survey report locations on your in-game map so you don’t need to reference our site.
For console users, click the links to zone names in the table above to view screenshots of all maps with indicated locations of survey reports!
Rich Enchanting nodes have a higher chance to yield higher level Aspect runes, but enchanting surveys are among the least profitable ones. Blacksmithing, Clothing, Woodworking and Jewelcrafting resource nodes can give you valuable Nirncrux trait stones more often (still only in Craglorn though).
Each survey map on average provides over 2,500g worth of materials.
Depending on the location, there may be monsters around the resource nodes indicated on your survey map which will have to be killed, but they’re always normal monsters which are easy to dispose of. Monsters in most locations can be avoided by using stealth to get past them.
These high-yield harvest nodes from survey reports will only appear if you have the corresponding survey. As mentioned previously, Provisioners will not receive any survey reports but instead have a chance to receive a recipe when turning in writ quests.
Our Crafting Writs Guide contains more information about crafting quests so go ahead and read it.
Thanks for explaining survey maps. I kept getting them after doing writs and I was super confused about their purpose. Thanks again. =)

If you don’t have any wayshrine open in those areas, try teleporting to a guild member’s location.
Can someone fix greenshade- it’s an ad saying you won something
There shouldn’t be any ads appearing which cover any content. Are you able to access the page directly? Does the ad appear over the link or when you load the page? Any information you could provide would be immensely helpful, if you’re seeing these kinds of ads it is not intentional and it should not be happening. Something must be doing something it’s not supposed to but I’m unable to identify what.
