Why GPS Lake Mapping is Important

June 3rd, 2010

After all, it’s just water, and perhaps it’s deepest in the middle and shallow around the edges. Is it really necessary to know exactly every spot of depth in the lake or pond?

If you plan to maintain a clean pond, free of toxins and obstacle, lake mapping definitely comes into play. If the lake is used for recreation especially, it’s imperative to know what lies underneath the surface so that maintenance efforts are always successful. Reasons to employ GPS mapping for your lakes include:

  • Determining high-volume fishing spots and areas of aquatic life

  • Spotting underwater obstructions and possible areas for installing underwater lights and pond aerators

  • Determining approaches to a dock area

  • Marking potential areas of danger for swimmers
