Kentucky Lake East Side Bays (South)
+ 3 Major Secondary Channels

*Note* The eastern side of this data set is in Tennessee and the 3 secondaries are in KY.


This is the index image for the KY Lake East Side Bays (South) map series.

The areas outlined in blue represent the portions of the east side bays and secondary channel that has been re-mapped. The surrounding black line represent the supplemental nav chart and aerial photography used as a background.

NEW depth data was collected in July & August of 2002.

The new maps extend from Rushing Bay to Panther Bay. This extends from Tennessee River miles 51 - 60.

The high resolution imagery (1-2 foot contour intervals) for this data set is based on over 120,000 depth readings covering more than 1400 acres.

10 independent sections are shown on the left.

The high resolution images (example below) are actually a hybrid image including the brand new data, plus background imagery. Included in the background is aerial photography and a transparent overlay of the navigation chart to help get oriented with real world features.








Topographic images on CD each contain a latitude and longitude grid and coordinates for easy calibration with GPS mapping software.

This is a sample from the Panther Bay Data. This is the actual junction of Panther Creek with the Tennessee River. This spot is well north of what is normally considered the "mouth" of the bay.

Latitude/Longitude grid lines are provide on the topo maps for easy calibration with GPS mapping software.

The contour interval on this image is 2.0 feet.

Hundreds of spot elevations are included on all sections for easy reference. If you know the current lake elevation, then water depth can be easily calculated.


This image illustrates the "background" to all the High Resolution topography.

Aerial photography covers the non-water portions of each map section.

Every point and minor bay is well represented even in non-re-mapped areas.




Very Cool !!!! Photorealistic Animations


A dramatically improved 3d imaging technique has been used to produce "animated" movies of each re-mapped section.

The summer pool level of 359 ft is represented on non-surveyed areas as the light blue you see here. A simulated water level is then established well below summer pool to help our eye conceive relative heights and placement of features.

This is only 1 frame of a 320 frame animated fly-through for what is called the "Boyd's Branch Secondary (north)."

Other items included on the CD
(not shown here) include:

Merged (put together) scan of Nav Charts 103 & 104 similar to the index map above. This is a 200dpi scan of these old but very useful charts that has been corrected for any stretch.

A very functional shareware version of OziExplorer GPS Mapping software is provided on disk to get you started with precision fishing. The HydroGrafx images work flawlessly with this version.
