Abstract

This report documents the methodology and procedures used to generate consistent and structured data holdings of bathymetric data from Welsh lakes. Where feasible, bathymetric data from documentary and electronic sources have been re-formatted into a consistent and accesible form and structure. We have achieved the significant task of transforming raw coordinate and depth data to bathymetric surface rasters and 0.5m interval polygon shapefiles that can be placed into GIS software. With this transformation we have generated volume/depth and area/depth data for the lakes at the same 0.5m interval. Statistical modelling of the bathymetric data shows that the collection of lakes analsyed span the spectrum of lake types found in Wales. We also show how a novel statistical approach can be used to generate bathymetric data.
