Bathymetric Maps of Various Coves and Areas of Deep Creek Lake

This is a collection of preliminary maps that we have produced using the over 600,000 measurements taken by Maryland's Department of the Natural Resources in the spring (April) of 2012.

The maps were developed with the "R" language for data processing and plotting, and produced in different resolutions, 5ft, 10ft, 20ft, and 40 ft. They were also produced with different methodologies. The maps that have been published here are the best of the batch, namely with the 10ft resolution and an interpolation method that provides results that appear to be good.

If interested in how these maps were generated go to the technical details page.

The coves and areas covered are shown in this overall map of Deep Creek Lake.
