New Jersey GPS Lake Map

The Mapping Network and Allied Biological completed a lake mapping project for a client in New Jersey.  The client is this case is a community association that manages 6 water bodies. The purpose was to give the client more accurate information about the lake, which had never been mapped to this detail before.  This is their 3rd largest lake and the community has already mapped the two larger lakes with the professionals at The Mapping Network and Allied Biological.   The bathymetry map assists Allied Biological, as their lake managers, in developing better management strategies, ie: determining herbicide application rates,  focusing on areas that may support nuisance plant growth and sediment accumulation, and locate suitable areas for in-lake plantings or aeration systems.
