Digital twin

A digital twin of government provides an ecosystem with an interface for government, industry and non-government organisations to work together in delivering a sustainable, intelligent place to live and work through improved societal outcomes. Most digital twins of government today are immature compared with the potential of this technology approach. Jurisdictions that have created these early versions of digital twins of government are often focused on developing a 3D or 4D GIS model of their physical environment. More-advanced features of solutions being leveraged by governments today include real-time event stream processing; spatial, descriptive and causal analytics; and citizen engagement tools. An example of a use case is using a digital twin of road and transportation systems to automate traffic management for incidents, weather and emergency response.
