COMING SOON | Streamlining data collection, hydrological workflows and analysis

With the upcoming release of Flood Modeller 7.1, the hydrologists’ world is going to be turned upside down - Forget the spreadsheets, hydrological workflows and analysis will soon be fully integrated within one software!

Coming in early May, the next phase in the implementation of our unique hydrological module, Hydrology+, will offer outstanding integrations and time savings to revolutionise how practitioners work day-to-day.

The first phase of the implementation included direct access to FEH webservice to download and import catchment descriptors, seamless access to hydrological data sources such as the National River Flow Archive and the Environment Agency's national river gauge data, as well as the ability to explore and utilise observed data directly from within the Flood Modeller interface.

These exclusive features, alongside the introduction of the WINFAP and ReFH2 cloud licensing, provided a step change for the flood hydrology discipline by providing direct access to necessary data, eliminating data request delays, speeding up workflows and allowing users to quickly set up simulations and calibrate models.

Coming in early May

Flood Modeller 7.1 takes the integration further by introducing new features to streamline and simplify hydrology workflows and analysis and fully integrating WINFAP and ReFH2.4 into Flood Modeller.

Calculation points

Quickly and easily define flood estimation points across the UK by bringing together FEH catchment descriptors and gauge data to enable detailed FEH analysis using WINFAP and ReFH2.4.

FEH Analysis

The full integration of workflows with WINFAP and ReFH2.4 allows flood analysis to be quickly and consistently completed, with all results securely stored in the Hydrology+ database. Users can also inspect and visualise results directly at each calculation point.

Hydrology projects

Group your analysis together using the new Hydrology+ project, allowing sharing and exporting at the click of a button.  Projects allow the storing of detailed hydrological analysis with models, ensuring data provenance and more effective model re-use.

Hydrology+ database

Our secure, structured database for holding your hydrology data and analysis. The new backup function means you can save your work in your local database as well as share it with colleagues and clients.

Scaling tool

Reconcile your ReFH2 and WINFAP analyses and combine with scaling factors to create inflow hydrographs for 1D or 2D model boundaries and add the data to the Hydrograph library.  Hydrology+ guides users to apply up-to-date climate change allowances from the Environment Agency, SEPA, Natural Resources Wales and the Department for Infrastructure.

Hydrograph library

Your completed FEH analysis will form a library of flood hydrology, covering different return periods, storm durations and climate change futures, which can be used directly within your 1D and 2D models.

Design Rainfall

As well as river flows, Hydrology+ allows the calculation of design rainfall using the last rainfall model (FEH22) and ReFH2.4.  Rainfall can be added directly to Flood Modeller 2D models or exported for use in other analyses.


No more spreadsheets, manual data requests, or labour-intensive handling of data from one software package to another, practitioners can work more quickly and efficiently thanks to streamlined workflows and access to multiple data sources directly in Flood Modeller. Reviewers can annotate projects directly in the software and the data can be seamlessly passed on to the hydraulic modellers for perfectly smooth collaboration.


The upcoming release will also include:

New Damage Calculator

Your economic analysis can be enhanced as the tool will soon enable you to calculate multiple additional damages.


We can’t wait to release the next version of Flood Modeller and open the next chapter of hydrological and hydraulic analysis – Watch this space!
