Starfield Jemison Survey Guide

Players can visit Jemison Planet in Starfield to get its survey data which can be sold for credits to vendors.

One of the planets in Starfield’s intergalactic map that you can survey is the Jemison. This is the planet that hosts New Atlantis, which is the biggest city in Starfield. You will visit here during the “One Small Step” and “The Old Neighborhood” missions.

Surveying and obtaining information about a planet’s resources, creatures, and weather is important. This will help you to know where you should go to get a specific thing. Also, surveying a planet to 100% will give you a data slate that can be sold for 4000-6000 Credits.

How to 100% survey Jemison in Starfield

You don’t necessarily need to scan all of the Jemison to get 100% of its survey data. Scan a planet for its flora, fauna, animals, plants, inorganic resources, and planet traits.

You will often need to travel from one biome to another to find different species of plants and animals. One thing you can remember is if you extract a plant, it will be included in the scan. Similarly, if you kill an animal, a scan will also have it.

To ease your process, here is a list of all the floras, faunas, and resources that you can find on Starfield planet Jemison:

How to discover Starfield Jemison Traits

Traits are special locations on a planet in Starfield that can be life signs or resources. If your Survey checklist has an exclamation circle on the bottom, it means you need to scan the planet for traits. Not all planets have traits, but that is not true with Jemison. Jemison in Starfield has 3 traits:

Sentient Microbial Colonies: To get this trait in Jemison, you must go to Sentient Microbial Colony locations and scan different Microbial Colonies.

Melted Glacier: Getting this trait is very easy: scan Glacial Remnants.

Ecological Consortium: In the map where it is labeled Ecological Consortium in Jemison, scan the Hives of that location.
