WGIC virtual event: Spatial Digital Twins
With a solid foundation in the manufacturing sector, it’s now time to analyze the transition of digital twins to a spatially enabled world – out of the factory to the streets, cities, countries and globe. The World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC), along with buildingSMART International, the International Standards Organization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC 211), the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) will be hosting a virtual event on April 5, 2022 on “Spatial Digital Twins: Trends, Opportunities and the Way Forward” (https://www.assetmapping.events/spatial-digital-twins). At the event, the WGIC will be launching its 2022 policy report titled, “Spatial Digital Twins: Global Status, Opportunities and the Way Forward”. The report explores the implementation of Spatial Digital Twins around the world, their trends, opportunities, and recommendations for the way forward.
The concept of Digital Twins is seeing an increased interest from industries globally. Thanks to improvements in technology and reduction in costs of sensors for data capture, a convergence of the digital world with the physical world is now a reality. Leading organizations around the globe are trying to quantify or estimate the benefits of Digital Twin adoption, which drive productivity, reduce costs and provide an improved understanding of the performance of physical assets and systems.
An outcome of the research is a report on Spatial Digital Twins with recommendations for authorities, standards development organizations, and the geospatial industry on guidelines, best practices, and standards related to Spatial Digital Twins. The report also articulates the value proposition of Spatial Digital Twins regarding return-on-investment, socio-economic impact, and support of the UN-adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
