Introduction

Mapping is basic human activity, born in antiquity and developed today to embrace complex, multilayered geographic information systems. Maps of lakes are of more intrinsic value than terrestrial maps, because they show features below the water surface the eye cannot see. Moreover, they can be used to compute various parameters of value in understanding the structure and functioning of lakes. This chapter is devoted to explaining these parameters and to expand upon the role of lake geomorphology in limnology.
