See Nearmap 3D Content in Action
This video shows a powerful illustration of a scenario in which a real house, in Wilberforce, Western Sydney, faces flooding and the trapped residents need helicopter evacuation. This example shows how Nearmap content can be used to understand what’s happening on the ground and support informed decision-making. Watch the video here.
What is a Digital Twin?
The term ‘digital twin’ refers to a replica of an area that’s a true representation of the real world, made possible by multiple layers of data, including 3D models. Digital twins replicate the real world virtually, allowing users to monitor, simulate and plan.
It’s now possible to create a digital twin of a whole city, so local governments or state authorities can manage a city as efficiently as possible by observing data and modeling potential scenarios.
For example, with a 3D digital twin of a city, city planners can introduce elements like air sensor and traffic flow information, to advise the community, and efficiently plan infrastructure such as roads and public transport development.
An effective digital twin is a powerful tool for urban planning and associated disciplines, helping architects and engineers plan and build new projects.
Reliable, Frequently-updated 3D Content
For every infrastructure project, an engineer needs a set of data. The ability to isolate an area, selecting it by simply drawing a circle around it and exporting in the required formats helps streamline engineering workflows.
With Nearmap 3D content updated at least annually to help you work with up-to-date reality models.
“Nearmap is making this kind of specialized niche information available to people who would never have otherwise had the chance to use it. It’s quite remarkable the difference it can make for government planners, engineers and architects, but it’s also fantastic when you deal with a small company like a landscaper, for example, and see them saving so much time by measuring what they need and making a plan remotely, rather than having to go on site,” says Stephen Neale.
Explore the 3D content offered by Nearmap – from the 3D Viewer, which can be used by anyone to view 3D textured mesh, with tools to measure and extract information; and 3D Export tool, which allows 3D subscribers to export any Nearmap 3D content types for use in specialized applications.
