The Process

To accurately model the contours of a lake, appointing an expert aquatic service provider is mandatory to perform the survey. The Lake Doctors, Inc. recognizes the dynamics of a lake to determine the best transect paths to precisely model the lake’s bathymetry. Our lake mapping system utilizes highly accurate procedures and equipment for data collection. Utilizing sub-foot accurate GPS units and acoustic depth-sounding equipment, our mapping system logs data points for extremely accurate results.

After the data has been skillfully collected in the field, our experienced geographers process the data using customized software programs to create a detailed lake map. This proprietary mapping software provides volume and area calculations, contour lines, 3D visualization, and fly through capabilities. The unique process used to derive this information is the quickest and the most accurate and cost-effective option available today.


Once a lake depth map is generated, a high-quality print can be produced in various sizes, from a small map to carry in your pocket while fishing on the boat to a full-color wall map in your home, cabin, or office. This print shows depth through contour lines or color shades. The Lake Doctors, Inc. provides its customers with a polished, user-friendly end product.
