GISing

So we've been mapping out our dive sites and survey transects using GPS and GIS software (QGIS) to get a better understanding of where things actually are underneath the lake and to aid us in exploring it in a more systematic manner. Yesterday we just focused on georeferencing some maps of Kande Island and the surrounding area and then plotting our dive circuit at the Outer Reef which lies not too far from the Island. The waypoints corresponded to roughly where we thought the Reef was so I am happy with the results. Today we are going to do some more test-runs on our survey line out at the Reef and lay another one at the Island. Take a look at where we are working on the map below. Zoom into letter "A"and find the island just offshore to it.
