A recent article in Infrastructure Global highlights how Singapore’s digital twin of its nation, a first in the world, holds the potential to help create better cities, as affirmed by Mark Coates and Andrew Foster of Bentley Systems (NASDAQ: BSY). Commissioned by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the objectives of the national digital twin include mitigating climate risks and weather hazards, including flash floods, torrential rains, and other events. As Singapore is the world’s most densely populated nation — with a population greater than one million inhabitants, land use on the small island is mission-critical to its sustainability.
In 2012, the Singapore Land Authority started creating a three-dimensional map of the island nation. Following the 3D map, GPS Lands Singapore approached the SLA with a plan to develop Virtual Singapore, a digital twin using software provided by Bentley Systems — ClimaTwin is a strategic partner of Bentley Systems, with deep integration to its digital twin technologies. Further, Singapore leveraged laser-scanning aircraft to record natural terrain and map surface information with great detail. In summary, infrastructure digital twins can unlock tremendous value for climate risk and resiliency at all levels of the built world.
