Rambøll needed to manipulate digital terrain models (DTMs) for input into their overland terrain flow system (DHI MIKE 21) for flood calculation, and postprocess flood results.

An FME Desktop workflow was designed to bring buildings from Shape files into the DTMs for flood calculations. Then another workflow post processes flood results, calculating the volume of the flooded water and the flooded areas. The output is both an Excel statistical file and a Shape file where the flood volumes for different areas can be found.

FME made it possible to quickly implement these processes without writing any code.

Rambøll is an engineering consultancy company from Denmark, with 200 offices in 28 different countries.

“I have a lot of experience in FME; I want to use it more, but I use it about 10% of my day.” -- Henrik Thorén, Rambøll
