CSIRO’s Data61 will share their progress on Digital Twin prototypes developed with governments using TerriaJS, and their vision for a potential future national digital twin – an ecosystem enabled by collaboration and innovation via a federated approach.
Our cities and communities have never been as data rich as they are today. However, analysing and making sense of complex datasets can be difficult and time-consuming even for domain experts. A ‘digital twin’ or a virtual model of our cities enables the conversion of high volumes of data into valuable insights that help to inform decisions about how we design, plan and manage our cities.
Data61 is currently working with governments to prototype Digital Twins using TerriaJS. These prototypes are integrating 3D data sets such as live transport data, infrastructure (above and below ground), building information models (BIM), and cadastral data, that will help enable integrated city planning. TerriaJS is an open-source framework for web-based geospatial catalogue explorers, that today powers world- leading platforms such as National Map, AREMI, and the National Drought Map.
In December 2018, the UK’s Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) released The Gemini Principles - a report outlining Britain’s vision and principles for delivering Digital Twins of the built environment. This report characterised a National Digital Twin not as a single twin, but as a federated ecosystem of Digital Twins linked via securely shared data. In this talk, CSIRO’s Data61 will present and demonstrate their Digital Twin prototypes in progress, and how this relates to a potential future state National Digital Twin for Australia.
