Lakebed 2030 Conference
Map the Great Lakes
The Great Lakes have never been mapped in detail. Though many maps of the Great Lakes show the shape and depth of the lake floor, known as bathymetry, they are created using data that is sometimes decades old and low-density.
Modern, high-density data enables an extremely detailed map and is critical for effective management, research, and innovation, particularly under mounting climate change threats and a growing blue economy in the Great Lakes region.
High-density data provides visualization of small objects such as pipelines, cables, shipwrecks, and boulders.
The objective of the Lakebed 2030 conference is to bring together science and research, policy, government, and industry professionals to:
- Focus on high-resolution mapping and bathymetry data in the Great lakes.
- Develop a strategy to catalog new and existing lake bed information for shared use.
- Share the latest technology advancements with the Great Lakes community.
