|Abstract||This report highlights the Clyde River watershed assessment activity conducted by scientists from Natural Resources Canada. This activity included the use of high resolution satellite imagery,
airphotos, and on-site field surveys to map the surrounding watershed boundaries and lake depths.|
This activity was also used as a technology transfer exercise, whereby local members of the community were trained to understand and use a set of
tools and solutions for conducting small lake surveys and for collecting GPS locations.

satellite image shown in this report.
Digital computer files resulting from this project, and described in this document, are available for free and are grouped under the same publication file. The digital files comprise of:
- Vector files of
the outlines of the two watersheds (ESRI shapefile.shp).
- Raster files illustrating the water depth model of each of the three lakes surveyed (Geotiff.tif)
- Vector files illustrating the depth contours (isobaths) of each of the three lakes
surveyed (ESRI shapefile.shp).
- Tabular statistics featuring the water volume for each of the three lakes.
- Lake volume statistics stored as .kml files (Keyhole Markup Language) viewable on tools such as Google Earth.
- Vector files
illustrating the depth contours of each of the three lakes stored as .img files compatible with Garmintm GPS map devices.
- A geocoded anaglyph product illustrating the surroundings of Clyde River. This digital and printed product is georeferenced
and should be viewed with anaglyph red-blue glasses.
