Case Studies

Some of the amazing projects we have completed.

An Interesting Application of Geospatial Technology in Sport

Outside of our usual water based surveys Storm often support the local community providing our knowledge when asked. One is example is using geospatial technology to set out rugby pitches for the new season.

Yorkshire Lakes Undergo Volumetric Calculations

In July 2023, a bathymetric survey was instructed by JBA consultancy working on behalf of Forestry England. Four Lakes situated within the North York Moors National Park and three within Dalby Forest.

Surveying the River Lee for Improved Ecology

Storm combine different survey techniques to provide critical data for river improvements.

River Condition Assessment for Bridge Design.

This is a fascinating case study showing how our surveyors physically assess a river and use the MoRPh survey algorithms to inform scenarios that improve river condition even after the negative impact of the construction of a bridge.

Collaboration to Aid Flooded Anglesey Residents

This project was contracted by Storm’s long-standing client Waterco on behalf of the Isle of Anglesey Council to investigate flooding that had occurred (and is still occurring) the properties in the village of Benllech, Anglesey.

Storm Surveyors Excel in Sub Zero Temperatures

Storm Geomatics’ survey of Bromham Brook near Stagsden was conducted during December 2022, for SWECO UK Ltd, to determine the flood risk of areas adjacent to the brook.

Pipeline Crossing Surveys

Storm Geomatics were tasked with tracing fuel pipelines at various locations across the country from Gatwick to Bristol where the pipelines cross rivers for an international client.

Combined survey techniques bring rich data on the River Avon

In late 2022, Storm Geomatics were asked by their client Atkins Global to carry out a bathymetric survey up and down stream of a site on the River Avon in Chippenham, Wilshire.

Minsmere and Yox Model Survey to Assess Flood Risk
