True lake bottom profile can be seen with lake mapping technology
Online PR News – 21-January-2012 – – The Mapping Network LLC, announces the addition of an automated sub-bottom sediment profile mapping system. This new technology is fully automated and does not require labor intensive manual sediment measurements. The system logs sediment and water depth readings simultaneously, allowing owners to chart the bottom of their lake with remarkable accuracy. Dredging companies use this information to accurately bid and complete projects. Mapping lake sediment with this technology saves time, money, and materials by being informed and efficient with the dredging process.
Sophisticated lake mapping technology allows owners to fully understand the severity of the sediment issues when planning a dredging project. Cubic yardage calculations of sediment for each removal area are rendered. Choosing important areas to dredge, based on up-to-date, accurate information allows for a focused dredging effort, saving thousands.
Mapping the bottom of the lake can also reveal areas of concern and optimal times when dredging will be necessary for the survival of the lake. Due to the large expense dredging is for lake owners, this new technology has helped owners save time and money and more effectively budget and plan for projects.
