New Zealand is about to invest more in our infrastructure than we’ve ever done before. This infrastructure will shape our communities by determining where we live, how we travel, the availability of work, and our access to essential resources. It has the potential to address inequality and enhance the lives of everyone who calls Aotearoa home.
The development of a National Digital Twin will provide us with a unique opportunity to harness technology to help us make informed decisions about our infrastructure investment. By creating a digital blueprint, government and industry will be able to work together to test assumptions, engage with our communities and develop long-term plans that meet our economic, environmental, social and cultural aspirations.
Thomas Hyde, Chief Digital Officer at Beca, draws on examples from around the world and discusses the enormous potential and significant outcomes a National Digital Twin could achieve for New Zealand.
