GeoRiver export to Tuflow
Tuflow is next on the agenda for a direct river model export from GeoRiver. Initially the export will handle the channel profile and then a second phase of development will take structures and Conveyance Estimation System data straight into the Tuflow model. This is going to be a valuable tool to anyone setting up a Tuflow river model. Watch this space!
Quote from Survey Operations Director Anthony Pritchard
“Our surveyors are using this software every day to produce the deliverables that our clients want. Storm GeoRiver is reliable in handling river channel data and high in performance when it comes to reaching the quality and speed that is required. Our surveyors quickly found that they could trust and enjoy using the software on a daily basis.
The more they use it, the more they find it works for not only channels but for other tasks such as embankment and road profiles. Because it is a standalone piece of software which is cloud licenced, we have installed it on every machine in the office so wherever you sit or wherever you are in the world, all you need is your username and password to use the software – no more queueing for computers with a pyramid of expensive software loaded on them to run a bolted on app or tool – we can share a single licence across the whole company and have the strong processing engine of Storm GeoRiver on every PC – “must have” piece of software for anyone involved in creating river models.”
We have shown Storm GeoRiver to a handful of people now and they all agree that it will help improve their efficiency and save them money. Some people are warming up to the functions on offer in V1.1 and of course, if you have a licence this upgrade comes free.
Some people will have been lucky enough to have received a 4GB memory card with the Storm GeoRiver introductory video. I don’t think I will get any awards for this, but I hope you found it interesting and have put the card to use for transferring and storing your data. If you would like a demo of the software, please get in touch and we can arrange one for you.
Cheers for now.
About To Go Live
It was three years ago when we put pen to paper and started developing a standalone piece of software that was to take river model data further towards the finished article. After hours of meetings in darkened rooms, many hours at the keyboard, and countless testing phases we are about to release version 1.0. This is base camp for Storm Georiver – the software is fully functional and ready to handle all kinds of data that is thrown at it. It will cope with data format problems that have never been automatically solved before and at the same time it will develop to solve more and more complex issues.
Having tested it on over 1000 river sections of differing types, it feels like a very solid platform – it keeps producing the results. Our users here think it is a breath of fresh air and the feedback comes in words such as – easy to use, that’s good, that’s useful, it’s done already!
We’re looking forward to sharing this with other professionals in the hydraulic engineering industry, I’m especially looking forward to demonstrating it!
