Creating a Storm at GeoBusiness 2019
For the 5th year Storm Geomatics exhibited at Geo Business
For the 5th year Storm Geomatics exhibited at Geo Business, the UK’s Largest geospatial event. With 3000+ attendees from over 50 countries, storm again showcased GeoRiver® our industry leading river data management software to a myriad of potential clients.
Uniquely, GeoRiver® is designed for use with the whole life cycle of river survey data, be it the river surveyor capturing the raw data, the hydrologist who uses the data to create a model of the watercourse to simulate its behaviour or the data manager who can use the tools within GeoRiver® to collate, archive and recall historic data with simplicity without impacting the quality or integrity of the dataset.
Over the 2 days, our stand was visited by hundreds of visitors all eager to see the software in action and to understand the benefits to their business. As well as live presentations, Toby Moyse and Tom Atkinson presented a workshop showcasing its core functionality to an enthusiastic audience, revealing how GeoRiver® automates the processing of raw survey data, demonstrating how it produces efficient high quality data and how quickly and easily it exports to a number of formats including HEC-RAS, ISIS, TUFLOW, EACSD and MIKE11. Efficiencies which ultimately contributes to a reduction in flooding.
The exhibition proved to be a huge success and it was good to meet and speak to like minded professionals all of which had a keen interest to reduce flooding. It certainly underpinned our mission “to share the software GeoRiver® ®amongst the global river mapping and modelling profession to improve the integrity and interoperability of geospatial river channel data.”
Finally, a congratulations to Steven Pearson who by tweeting a picture of our GeoRiver® fridge magnet along with the corresponding what3words/// address, was picked at random in our #WinWaders competition, won a pair of Orvis waders and Rocka Water Rescue Boots.
