About the seminar

We are seeing an unprecedented global move towards the digitisation of the built environment, driven by national and international urban digital twin initiatives. These initiatives aim to improve real-time and longer term strategic decision making, planning and investment.

Significant progress has been made in the development of built environment digital twins. But, we need to address major challenges to realise their full potential. This talk will use case studies to explore data, analytical and simulation modelling approaches used to develop real-time and strategic planning urban digital twins of the built environment.
