More Accuracy, More Confidence

LakeMaster Mapping

LakeMaster Mapping

For decades LakeMaster® has been putting accuracy, detail, and a passion for angling on the map lead by a devoted team of GIS analysts, anglers, and surveyors alike. LakeMaster's partnership with Humminbird® is now beginning to break down more barriers than ever before. Humminbird LakeMaster mapping is not only growing in coverage area, but also expanding the possibilities of cartography. Together innovation continues to lead to new and exciting products, seamless integration between software and hardware, a relentless focus on helping anglers catch more fish, and a commitment to doing it all right here in the U.S.A.

It’s Changed the Way I Fish

GPS Map Cards

GPS Map Cards

Accuracy and detail give anglers using Humminbird LakeMaster GPS Map Cards the best High Definition hydrographic maps on the market. More coverage means more opportunity for catching fish on your favorite bodies of water. These map cards are available in nine Humminbird compatible editions, providing lake maps in 33 states, parts of North West Ontario, and the Great Lakes. Visit our product page for more information on product features, complete lake list, compatibility, the coverage of each edition and more.

Levels of Detail

Levels of Detail

Various levels of map detail exist within the LakeMaster cartography library. 

High Definition vs Standard Definition
High Definition is ascribed to a chart by LakeMaster when the underlying data is of such high quality and density that the resulting map is very accurate. Only the most accurate and detailed surveyed data combined with the talents of our experienced GIS analysts earn the “High Definition” label. Humminbird Lakemaster High Definition lake charts have the highest level of accuracy, especially in the shallow “fishing structure” areas. In some cases, the bathymetric data to build the map has been gathered by LakeMaster’s own survey team. These lakes are identified as a “LakeMaster High Definition” chart.

Contour Line Density
Spacing of contour lines does not determine if a map is high definition or not. LakeMaster uses 1-ft contours on most of our high definition maps, but not all. On some lakes that are deep and have steep break lines, 3-ft contour spacing might be used because the lines become so dense at 1-ft that it isn't functional. It’s still high definition i.e. “high accuracy”.

High Definition Detail

High Definition Detail

High Definition detail is data often gathered by our own survey crew who spend tireless hours mapping year round. Their information is then processed by the experienced GIS team. The results are high quality, highly accurate 1 - 3 foot contour maps, sometimes as tight a 6” intervals, that provide anglers with the best fishing data available.

Standard Definition Detail

Standard Definition Detail

Standard Definition contours are usually in 3 - 5 foot intervals. These enhanced maps are made by LakeMaster using publicly available information. This general lake contour information becomes the basemap. Then, our G.I.S. analysts apply techniques to ensure accuracy of shorelines and update visible features to provide a general lake profile.
