GIS Applications

More than 25 years’ experience of GIS software 

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is a computer-based capability for the manipulation of spatial (geographical) data which enables the overlaying of many data layers, handling data in raster, vector, and tabular formats. 

Hydro-GIS have used GIS extensively for a wide range of projects and provide specialist consultancy in this area such as:  

  • Producing maps at different scales 
  • Thematic mapping of a range of geographical features 
  • Spatial analysis and grid-based modelling 
  • Analysis of satellite imagery and remote sensing data 
  • 3-d visualisation 

In particular we have used GIS for hydrological purposes such as: 

  • Flood depth and extent mapping,  
  • Generating digital terrain models 
  • Modelling flow pathways based on surface topography 
  • Delineating river networks and drainage basins 
  • Defining hydrological model parameters

Looking for training? Hydro-GIS provide independent courses and workshops in ArcGIS. Either as a general introduction or for a specific application (such as flood mapping).  Contact us to discuss your requirements. 

Case Study

As part of a study with a team of environmental consultants, Hydro-GIS used GIS to map and analyse a world-wide dataset of over 3,000 samples of 14 different pharmaceutical based pollutants.  

The analysis mapped concentrations using a traffic light-based warning system to highlight the most at risk areas and also produced a statistical analysis of different chemicals at particular sampling locations. 


University College London Courses

Dr Harvey Rodda, our Director of Hydrology, is an Associate Professor at University College London and provides a module on the flood hazard as part of the MSc in Geophysical Hazards and Certificate in Natural Hazards for Insurers course.  Download the course brochure for more details:
