The National Land Service under the Ministry of Agriculture, being a state institution which participates in implementation of public policies for land management and administration, land reform, land use planning, real estate cadaster, accounting, geodesy, cartography, state georeferential spatial data sets and preparation of Lithuanian spatial information infrastructure, is introducing a new set - the bathymetric inland waters map set.
In the Lithuanian spatial information portal (www.geoportal.lt) managed by the National Land Service bathymetric data of Lithuania‘s inland waters, covering lakes, ponds, Curonian and Kaunas lagoon and part of the seashore are presented.
The data have been prepared on an initiative of state institution Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics Center (GIS-Centras), after structuring and vectoring available information (bathymetric plans, schemes) from Nature Research Centre, Institute of Geology and Geography, Climate and Water system sector, Inland Waterways Authority, Environment Protection Agency and Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics Center. All the information was systemized, vectored and the set was created by the portal manager GIS-Centras.
New data and bathymetric plans will be added when available and will be adapted for the use in mobile devices.
The bathymetric maps can be viewed at http://www.geoportal.lt/geoportal.web.en map search.
