Neil has been busy with the GPS unit this spring charting over a dozen lakes in the area. This means we’ll soon have new and updated lake maps available for Lake Wisconsin, Beaver Dam Lake, Lake Ripley, the Madison chain, and more.
These maps are built using Google Earth. They can be viewed online or downloaded to view on your own copy of Google Earth. OR… if you’ve subscribed to Google Earth Pro, you can import the data directly into your own GPS unit and take it with you when you’re out on the lake.
The maps include reference points for
- Lake hazards (stumps & rock piles)
- Warning buoys
- Navigational buoys
- Public access points (boat ramps, piers, fishing areas, & swimming areas)
- On-water gas stations
- Water-accessible restaurants
- Public restrooms
- Campsites and picnic areas
We’ll start posting the maps next week
