The Geo Connect Asia panel discussion, staged as part of the Singapore Geospatial Week+ 2020, was a roaring success and we would like to thank our host and panellists for their expert views. We are happy to provide free access to the webinar recording, on a limited time basis. Catch the full discussion below:
About the Panel
New technologies and processes are transforming the operational landscape of infrastructure projects across the region. With new demands on sustainability, accountability and liveability there is a growing appreciation of geospatial tools, enhanced by access to live data and its associated analytics.
- Panellists touched on digital twins and new processes for infrastructure projects and how the industry can adapt in a post-COVID environment.
- There are plenty of digital enablers and innovative technologies out there. However, unless there is capacity building in the process, we may not achieve what we want to achieve as a goal of project sustainability.
- A digital twin or infrastructure project solution may work well in one city but not anywhere else - one size does not fit all. We need to properly define what is a digital twin to that particular city, and what is the purpose. This will ensure if the smart city project fails or succeeds.
