yes, it is not the typical way we do map, but it is an ideal / a clear
definition how it ideally should be. Sometimes you can see the deepest part
of a river, e.g. when the aerial imagery was taken in a dry period or you
have been there when the river had very few water (and/or if the river is
of the kind that mostly has not much water, but does in the spring time
when the snow melts, e.g. in the mountains).
