Bathymetry and Sediment Mapping in New Jersey

The Mapping Network was contacted by Solitude Lake Management to perform a bathymetric and sediment evaluation of a specific pond. This evaluation will then be used for Dredging of the area. We converted their Trimble SSF file of bathymetric data over to GIS data to then be used for mapping. Our Geospatial Analyst then produced three visuals: 3D Bathymetry Map, Contour Bathymetry Map, and a Sediment Thickness Map. These will provide the Technicians in the field great guidance for their dredging purposes.

Hydrographic Survey of Missouri River for Gas Pipeline

The Mapping Network and Engineering firm team up to map the bottom of the Missouri River

The Mapping Network was on the Missouri River performing a hydrographic survey on a portion of the river where a new gas pipeline would be crossing.  The pipeline is buried  below the river bottom and knowing the existing bottom of the Missouri River is crucial to engineers placing the pipeline correctly.

The survey team was able to finish the project on time despite dodging rogue chunks of  trees, sandbars and other mysterious items floating down the river. The resulting map shows many features you would expect to find on the Missouri River.

Sediment Levels High in Your Lake?

Here at The Mapping Network, we understand the challenges and costs associated with locating and removing sediment. We specialize in accurately mapping bodies of water, calculating the water volume, collecting sediment depth samples at critical areas and monitoring the distribution of sediment over time.

Common questions from our clients:

  • Where is the highest sedimentation occurring?
  • How much fluffy sediment (in cubic yards) is in each cove?
  • If the lake is drawn down 5 ft, what would the shoreline look like?
  • How much water (gallons and acre-ft) is in the lake?
  • If we make each cove a minimum of 4 feet deep for boat access how much material do we need to remove?
  • By undertaking this mapping process will it save us money in the end?

Each of these questions can be answered by mapping the lake using The Mapping Network’s system. We are able to locate the problems areas and calculate the volume (in cubic yards) of material to be removed. The lake mapping data allows us to show the new shoreline if a lake is drawn down 1 ft, 5 ft, 10 ft, etc. Also, calculating water volume at various lake levels can be done. One of the best aspects of the mapping process is it allows the owner and contractor to be on the same page. Successful planning and execution of the dredging project can ensue. We have seen clients save tremendous amounts of money by using The Mapping Network to survey their lake before undertaking the dredging process.

The time to act is now. Don’t waste another year trying to manage your resource without this information.

South Carolina Lake Mapping to Identify Spawning Habitat

Quality Lakes mapped a lake in rural South Carolina as part of a fisheries habitat plan.   The client needed to locate potential spawning tables, which occur in 5 foot of water or less.   Additional habitat work will ensue to allow for additional spawning areas to increase the overall health of the fishery.

High Resolution Drone Aerials for Lake Mapping

Trent Lewis, owner of PondMedics, had a homeowners association with many homes constructed in the past couple years around their ponds.  The HOA needed to determine the current water depths along with sediment volume.   Since most aerial imagery services take a year or two (sometimes longer) to update, a majority of the newly constructed homes were not shown.   PondMedics flew the property with a specialized drone and The Mapping Network assisted in processing the data to create a georeferenced orthomosaic.   The result produced a highly accurate lake map with crisp, up-to-date imagery.

On demand aerial imagery from a drone offers current, high level of detail.

Pond Spawning Shelf Design

Quality Lakes owner Wade Bales completed a bathymetric survey of a lake in South Carolina.   To successfully grow large bass and other fish in the lake, it was determined there needed to be four spawning shelves .   The Mapping Network worked with Mr. Bales to design and estimate the amount of material needed to construct the shelves.

Kansas City Lake and Sediment Survey

The Mapping Network completed a water depth and sediment thickness survey for a homeowners association in Kansas City, MO.  The HOA needed to understand the amount and distribution of sediment currently in the lake so they could collect bids from dredge contractors.
