Bathymetric Survey of Mountain Lake

15th April, 2014

The stunning surroundings of Capel Curig in the heart of Snowdonia were recently the location for a bathymetric survey to create a digital terrain model of a natural lake.  Given the lake is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) the survey craft had to be man-powered rather than deploying the usual outboard motor.

Employing a Canadian canoe the surveyors obtained depth data which was processed via AutoCAD Civil 3D software to create a high resolution model which was subsequently integrated to the onshore topographical survey.
