White paper: How cities can use urban digital twins to combat the effects of climate change
Combating climate change requires organization and a structured approach
Voltaire once said, “Men argue. Nature acts." Many people are convinced we are beyond the stage of arguing over climate change, and the time to act is now. Local governments around the world are undertaking initiatives to fight the effects of climate change, but such a fight requires organization and a structured approach.
Enter the urban digital twin. Hexagon’s definition of an urban digital twin consists of multiple layers. The first is the “digital city,” or a digital replica of the city. Adding data from sensors, alarms and other devices leads to the “connected city.” When AI and simulations are applied to this data, we reach the “intelligent city.”
Hexagon is uniquely positioned to help city officials realize a true urban digital twin that solves specific challenges and creates value for city officials and residents.
In this white paper, learn how city leaders combating the effects of climate change can leverage urban digital twins to:
Set priorities: Determine where to start and how to prioritize and allocate available funds
Take unified action: Maintain a view of all initiatives, make sense of data and implement solutions based on citywide analysis
Monitor outcomes: Derive insights for optimizing operations and make informed decisions for the future
