Crater Lake

A cool new map of the Crater Lake area is now out — based on Lidar (or light-detection images).

Because it’s based on remote sensing technology similar to radar, the images are very dense and accurate.

The new-generation map covers area trails, like the Pacific Crest Trail.

    The LIDAR looks cool, but the title could cause confusion. The lake itself was mapped back in 2000 using a multibeam echosounder. LIDAR is typically for the earth’s surface, not bodies of water. Only recently have Lasers started to map very shallow water in clear conditions.
