LEWIS SMITH LAKE GOOGLE MAP
One of our favorite local residents on Smith Lake is Mrs. Sue Clements. If you meet her online or in person, you are going to fall in love...trust us on that. She's one of the good ones... no, actually, she is one of the great ones.
One of her favorite things to do upon moving to Smith Lake was to find out everything she could about the area. In doing so, she began to form a Google MyMap that would help her find places to visit around the tri-county area. Her travels about the lake became so extensive that her collected information and map grew to the point of becoming a link that she wanted to share with others.
As noted on her Facebook Group "Exploring Lewis Smith Lake" she created the group to:
1) Share her Google MyMap of the Lake
2) Share her Places to Files

Instructions for using Sue's Google Map of Lewis Smith Lake
The map is broken down into the these categories:
· Main Waterways
· Lodging, Camps, & Parks
· Restaurants on the water
· Points of Interest
When the map is first opened it will not show any details.
Once a category(s) is chosen, click on the down arrow just below the check box to see a list of locations in that category. Clicking on an item in the list will cause the icon for that item to be highlighted on the map and the information for that item will be displayed.
A '?' after a name indicates that we do not have the location. In some cases, they are mapped to the vicinity. If unknown, we mapped them in a straight line starting in Addison and going south. If you know the location/coordinates, please message Sue.
The Waterways category in previous versions of the map has been divided into “Main Waterways” and “Tributaries.” To see all waterways on the map as it was in previous versions, check both categories.
Clicking on the magnifier, search the map table for a particular place (ie: Indian Head or Trident Marina.)
Generally, the labels associated with the locations will be displayed next to their icon. If the zoom is such that the labels would overlap, only one label will show. Zoom in to see both labels or click on the icon to see the label.
Google Map Limitations - Sue's Notes
The map is initially built from a series of Excel files - one for each category. The categories in the map legend are listed in order that they are built into the map. To reconstruct a category from the excel file, you have to delete the category in the map and then import the excel file again. That category will then be at the end of the list.
When the file is first built, the locations in each category are listed alphabetically. If you add a new location, it goes in at the top of the list and thus the items will no longer be in alphabetical order. Thus far, I have just been rebuilding the category so that they will be alphabetical,
Pictures for the locations are added directly into the map. If a category is rebuilt from the Excel file the pictures are lost thus I will not be able to keep the categories or items in the categories in any particular order once I start adding pictures.
