The Fishermans Bend Digital Twin project adopts FAIR Data Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) and enables spatial information to be searched, discovered, aggregated and visualised seamlessly, irrespective of system, model, data content, server or application.
A digital twin is a digital representation of the real world. This project will enable creation of 4D modelling of a physical asset’s design and condition (above and underground), including precise location and legal boundaries, enabling better decision-making about how to manage current and future infrastructures.
A collaborative and cross-disciplinary approach across government, research and industry will allow CSDILA to aggregate, manage and visualise complex digital information about cities so the information can be interpreted.
CSDILA has been chosen by the Victorian Government Land Use Victoria DELWP (Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning) to design and develop ‘Victoria’s first Digital Twin Project’ at the landmark urban renewal project: Fishermans Bend.
Fishermans Bend is the perfect location to showcase the importance of this urban planning technology as this inner city precinct is transformed and grows over the next 30 years. In time, government stakeholders will be able to build intelligent, innovative digital systems either independently or collectively, to coordinate the management of smart, sustainable and livable cities, suburbs and regional centres. This work starts with the Fishermans Bend precinct.
By leveraging CSDILA’s capabilities and technical resources, and in close collaboration with wider government and industry, the Fishermans Bend project will establish and promote a more responsible approach to the urban renewal and precinct planning activities, and as a live testbed to maximise the achievement of sustainable future for all. It is one step closer to the realisation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in Australia.
