Spatial Digital Twin to revolutionise planning data for NSW

From Broken Hill to Newcastle and Bega to Ballina, the NSW’s nation-leading Spatial Digital Twin will soon provide a 4D model for the entire state with a $40 million investment from the NSW Digital Restart Fund (DRF).

Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said, “This digital architecture makes it possible to visualise a development digitally before it is physically built, making it easier to plan and predict outcomes of infrastructure projects, right down to viewing how shadows fall, or how much traffic is in an area.

It will boost productivity allowing customers, developers and planners to see into the future, he said.

“This investment will cement NSW’s position as the world leader when it comes to Spatial Digital Twin technology,” Mr Dominello said.

“In the last 12 months the Spatial Digital Twin has received 18 million requests for access to 3D datasets. We are creating a digitally cutting-edge State that will benefit from all the productivity advantages and job creation this technology brings.”

The Spatial Digital Twin brings together data sources from across government including spatial, natural resources and planning, and integrates it with real time feeds from sensors to provide insights for planners, designers and decision makers across industry and government.
