The Mapping Network Lake Mapping


Published on

The Mapping Network is a nationwide group of professionals providing the highest quality and most affordable bathymetric, sediment and asset mapping products on the market today. The Mapping Network has partners located throughout the county working directly with recreational property owners, lake associations, engineers, golf courses, marinas, developers, governmental organizations, and fishing clubs. A local expert aquatic service provider understands the dynamics of a lake to determine the best transect paths to precisely model the lake's bathymetry. With 12 years of experience in the bathymetry mapping profession, our highly trained staff understand and employ the latest technology trends to generate a bathymetric map that is amazingly accurate and also aesthetically enjoyable.

  1. 1. Professional Lake Mapping Steve Bartosh The Mapping Network
  2. 2. Lake Mapping Program The Mapping Network (TMN) is an industry leader inGeographic Information Systems (GIS) Consulting, DataConversion, and GPS Data Collection. TMN specializes in terrain and sub-surface (bathymetry) GPSmapping Our experienced staff have been using GIS and GPStechnology for land and water services since 1995 TMN has developed proprietary technologies for datacollection, analysis and map generation A select group of professional lake management companiesthroughout the nation have been chosen to provide lakemapping services
  3. 3. Lake Mapping Bathymetry or Bathymetric Mapping – the study of underwater depth, of the third dimension of lake or ocean floors. A bathymetric map or chart usually shows floor relief or terrain as contour lines, and may additionally provide surface navigational information.Location = x and yDepth = z
  4. 4. Lake Mapping Process Integrates GPS (Global Positioning System) with sub-foot (30 cm) accuracy and Sonar equipment. Provides a location (x,y) and a depth (z) every two seconds. Import 3D data points (x,y,z) into customized software program where highly skilled analysts produce a 3D model. Once a 3D model is built several calculations and information products can be produced, including water volume, average depth, sediment volume and even how many gallons of water it would take to raise the water body by a inch. The Mapping Network produces industry leading bathymetric maps with unsurpassed accuracy.
