Bathymetry, GPS Surface Mapping and More

As the lake and pond management industry leader, SOLitude Lake Management offers the most technologically advanced lake mapping services available on the market. Providing the most detailed and highest quality mapping products you can buy, for a very affordable price, SOLitude Lake Management is proud to be designated by the Mapping Network as an exclusive Lake Mapping Partner.

Equipped with the very latest in GPS surface mapping, bathymetry, 3-D contour imaging, and aerial and fly-over video resources, we are able to add layers of depth to the information our customers seek. Whether you are tracking sedimentation, planning for dredging, looking to improve your fishery, or simply looking to understand the overall size, volume and bottom contour of your pond in order to make good management decisions, we have the tools you need to be successful:

  • Lake Mapping and Studies
  • Aquatic Vegetation Mapping
  • Bathymetric Mapping
  • Sedimentation Analysis
  • Dredging Planning
  • Lake Monitoring

Understanding the exact surface area of your waterbody is one of the first steps in developing a lake or pond management plan. Surface mapping utilizes GPS software and satellite imagery, which enables a SOLitude specialist to determine a waterbody’s surface area. It’s also important to identify the locations of the physical and structural components of your waterbody, such as inlet and outlet structures, fountains, aeration systems, and fish habitats.

Bathymetric Studies

Bathymetric mapping involves the use of integrated GPS and depth sensing technology to create a three-dimensional model of your waterbody. As a result, this model has detailed bottom contours and highly accurate volume calculations. This information is vital to managing water quality, aquatic plants, algae and other aquatic life in your ecosystem.

Sediment Analysis

Accumulation of sediment on the bottom of your lake or pond is inevitable. However, the rate at which it will accumulate is highly variable, and in many instances within the control of the lake or pond owner. To accurately determine this sediment accumulation in your waterbody, when it will need to be removed and the cost associated in doing so, bathymetry is a must. We recommend having a bathymetric study and sediment analysis performed every three to five years. Data collected will serve as a baseline for owners and lake managers to help establish an accurate budget and timetable for potential dredging projects.

Lake Mapping and Bathymetric Data can be utilized to:

  • Develop programs to manage your aquatic vegetation or algae issues.
  • Strategically place structural fish cover.
  • Plan and budget for future sediment removal.
  • Properly size and place aeration devices.

The maps provided by SOLitude Lake Management Company are for informational purposes only, designed to be used by our clients to evaluate their lakes and ponds to better understand the characteristics of these water bodies and properly plan for achieving their management objectives. We are not licensed surveyors or engineers and our maps are not designed to delineate property lines or legal boundaries of any sort, nor should they be used for any purposes related to circumstances for which a licensed surveyor or engineer is required. For those clients whose work would legally require stamped drawings from licensed surveyors or engineers, we have strategic partnerships with survey and engineering firms with which we can work to help you meet your overall objectives.

Extremely Helpful & Friendly Staff

Extremely helpful and friendly staff that is always a pleasure to deal with. I have used this company for over 4 years now and they have provided great service and were able to deal with and correct problems that five other lake management companies were not able to even begin to address. I highly recommend this company for any of your lake service needs.

A Pleasure to Work with SOLitude

For the past 2 years as a member of our neighborhood board, I worked personally with Mitchell of SOLitude Lake Management. Our neighborhood has over 40 lakes & ponds. I can honestly say it was a pleasure to work with this vendor. Mitchell provided weekly updates and as our aquatics expert, he helped educate us and assisted in developing a restorative approach to our lake & pond management. It was a pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable representative. Thanks!

SOLitude Helped Us Achieve Our Community Goals

As the manager of wetlands and open water for my community, I work with SOLitude Lake Management closely. They have helped us define our vision and achieve our goals. Every wetland area and body of water has different uses and different needs. SOLitude understands that and ensures those needs are met all the while keeping the budget in mind. We have annual fishing tournaments and they come out and talk with the anglers, explaining what we’ve done during the past year and what our future steps will be. Management of wildlife and waters is an ongoing and long-term commitment, SOLitude understands this. They have a dedicated staff that not only manages these areas but also helps educate their clients.

We Are In Good Hands with SOLitude

We were presented with the challenge of dealing with our stormwater basin, which is regulated by EPA standards that we were not familiar with. SOLitude came in and guided us through the entire process. Our basin went from an eyesore to a spectacular main selling point for our community. We are in good hands with SOLitude and cannot thank them enough!
