- Digital doubles of objects
Digital twin of the city
A city is not only a physical space, but also a social unit. It is the product of a continuous interaction between the physical and social world. With the advent of the digital world, the city evolves from the interaction of these worlds to the creation of a digital city.
< br>Google Maps features for viewing streets and 3D buildings can be considered as a starting point in creating a digital twin of the city. But the demand is growing not only for three-dimensional images of cities.
A virtual analogue is a smart three-dimensional model of a city that accurately represents streets, buildings, public places, as well as other objects of a physical city. Many digital elements are updated in real time, for example, the movement of people or vehicles.
The electronic duplicate can also track electricity consumption and water consumption in real time. In addition, it can perform maintenance work or track the location of emergency services for a better response to emergency situations. Digital twin of the city
Virtual analog of the city< / b>
The virtual model of the city will allow the city administration authorities to simulate any improvement plans before physically implementing them, checking potential problems before they appear. With its help, you can plan and analyze such architectural aspects: environmentally friendly housing, wireless network antennas, solar panels, public transport, and much more.
The sensors are already installed in many cities. They generate analytical data related to environmental conditions, and can also combine to create the basis of a virtual model of an entire city.
< p>The digital city is the «next reality» for our urban landscapes. Starting with an electronic duplicate, cities can begin to develop a new set of applications that will optimize and improve all aspects of urban life.
< b>Digital scanning of buildings
< p>Digital scanning of buildings allows you to create a 3D model of the environment that is accurate enough to form a detailed digital space.
3D models created by digital scanning can serve as the basis for the development of a digital twin of a settlement — a service recommended by the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation within the framework of the Concept of the Smart City Urban Digitalization Project.
The interactive map clearly shows the interaction of various processes and components of the urban environment, which allows you to comprehensively analyze the infrastructure and manage it, taking into account the current regulations and the interests of residents.
Geo-linked photorealistic 3D models of the urban and natural environment are created on the basis of aerial photography from the Geoscan unmanned aerial system equipped with a professional full-frame camera. After processing the materials with the help of advanced Agisoft Metashape Pro software, accurate orthophotoplans, height matrices and three-dimensional models are formed.
