Shoothill was established in 2006, by Rod Plummer and Erik Nodland, to provide a full end-to-end service for custom software projects, including web and mobile application development, API solutions and data visualisation, for both consumer and corporate audiences alike.
At the core of Shoothill's ethos is a continual commitment to explore and apply new technologies to create bespoke, innovative business solutions. Recognised by Microsoft as a Silver Development Partner, we have a proven track record of successfully delivering over 300 projects.
Shoothill have been at the forefront of visualising and disseminating flood & river level data since early 2012 when Flood Alerts, the UK’s first live flood warning map, was launched. FloodAlerts was licensed by the Environment Agency for use on their website, is supplied to the BBC and used throughout the UK media.
In 2014, Shoothill launched the award-winning GaugeMap service, an interactive visualisation of over 3000 river level gauges, showing current river conditions through England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. As part of this project, and to maintain Shoothill’s position at the forefront of innovation in this area, each river level gauge has been connected to Twitter - an Internet of Things world first!
As well as this outstanding work in hydrological data visualisation and social media dissemination, Shoothill have also developed software solutions for some of the world’s biggest companies such as BT, HSBC, Experian and Formula One.
