A Digital Twin is a virtual version of a product or, in this case, a city or neighbourhood. This is used to make analyzes before an intervention or adjustment is applied in real life.
Policymakers, directors, managers, urban developers and architects can get an insight into complex spatial issues. All available data, mainly public sources, can be included if also desired from other sources. The 3DCityplanner delivers quick access to data, possibilities to combine data, and present data clearly. The effect is optimal use of available data, resulting in responsible land use and management above and below ground.
The 3D Cityplanner is a 3D software tool in a browser that visualizes and calculates spatial plans intuitively. A large number of aspects like finances, land use and sustainability can be considered and calculated. It’s a tool that integrates design and calculations. In recent years, this is also called GeoDesign: planning and designing spatial plans, using all available Geo-information and simulations.
