Lake Map

Postby rgerding » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:21 pm

When my son bought property on Smith Lake I thought it would be nice to have a map hanging in the Lake house.

Very nice!

Living in northern Minnesota, I have been wanting to get into making lake contour maps, but just haven't had time yet to convert all those DNR pdf files...

Dave,

About half of the MN 10,000 (21,871 over 2.5 acres) lakes are vectors if you can manipulate ESRI ArcMap shapefiles. I bring them into ArcMap and then export as dxf files and then they can be brought into VCP and manipulated. I do the contours as steps and I have not spent the time to convert to smooth curves yet. People seem to like them even if they are steps instead of smooth. On reclaimed redwood, spray painted and then sanded.

bigduke6,

Is your map 3d or are you pocketing and then filling with a resin to make it level. I would think a 3d would be a little distracting to sit on if that is a bench.
