Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc offers a wide range of lake management, GPS lake mapping and fisheries management services to residential, commercial, and private lake owners throughout Georgia and the southeast.
On the surface, a lake or pond seems serene and effortless to maintain, but under the shell is a complex, dynamic organism requiring expert knowledge to produce a perfect balance. To fully enjoy your lake or pond it is essential to know the facts. Exact acreage, depths, and chemistry of your lake are critical factors for making the best management decisions. Armed with this knowledge you will be able to properly place structure, deliver appropriate stocking densities, select the correct fish species, apply the right amount of weed control, and of course gain a better idea where those bass may be hiding! The Mapping Network maps lakes throughout the entire year but typically the best time to map a lake is from fall until spring, while the weeds are down. An accurate lake map provides the information needed to make the most of your aquatic resource. The Mapping Network provides the highest quality and is the most affordable bathymetric mapping system on the market today. If you are serious about maintaining a high-quality lake or pond, be sure you have the ability to make the best decisions, get your lake mapped by the professionals at The Mapping Network.

Pond Medics Inc., successfully completed a GPS lake mapping project for a client in central Texas. The owner of the lake wanted an accurate, up-to-date base map highlighting the old creek channel and marking existing diffusers and feeders with GPS coordinates. This new lake map will assist the owner in locating the most favorable areas to fish. As far as a management tool, Pond Medics will use the lake map to calculate acres for stocking, help evaluate how many weeds may be present, calculate acre/feet for treatments, etc. In other words, provide the client with the best fishing possible on his lake.
Integrated Lakes Management (ILM) recently completed a mapping project for a Chicago metro homeowners association. The purpose of this project involved sediment monitoring for future dredging. In order to avoid large costs and help property managers budget for sediment removal, ILM located the high priority areas of sediment accumulation and determined the need and location for dredging. The mapping techniques utilized in this project helps ILM accurately calculate in-situ sediment volume and accumulation over time. Thus, ILM is able to accurately isolate areas of high sedimentation for removal and help property managers budget accordingly. This powerful information allows for smart management decisions and will save thousands of dollars in the future.

Possessing an accurate map of your lake is a great asset to your fishing success. Greg Grimes with Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc., recently completed a GPS lake mapping project for a client in Georgia. This is a master planned lake designed specifically for growing trophy large-mouth bass. Extensive habitat structure, ridges, brush, feeders, etc were carefully placed during construction. Once the lake was full the client had the lake mapped utilizing The Mapping Network’s lake mapping technology to reveal this unseen, underwater world. Combining sub-foot accurate equipment and depth accuracies of up to 1/10th of a foot, the resulting maps provided a picture of the bottom of the lake. Mr. Grimes was able to provide a map highlighting the ideal fishing zones in the range of 4 feet to 16 feet deep at 1 foot intervals. This lake map shows the angler exactly where the fishing hot spots are located on the lake. If you are serious about managing a trophy fishery in your lake contact one of our lake mapping partners to provide the expertise to make it happen!
