Lakebed 2030: Mapping the Great Lakes Conference

Today, only 15% of the lakefloor has been mapped at high-density, leaving gaps in our understanding of the Great Lakes

  • 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.

A map that is easy to use and open to everyone

In 2019, a group of researchers, technologists, and others dedicated to creating a complete map launched Lakebed 2030.

Begun as a grassroots regional initiative that harmonizes governmental and non-governmental efforts, Lakebed 2030 is dedicated to bringing together new and existing bathymetric data to create a new map of the Great Lakes that is easy to use and open to everyone.
