Special Interest Groups

Spatial Digital Twins

Spatial digital twins are rapidly emerging as a powerful tool for managing complex physical systems in the digital world. With their ability to provide an accurate and up-to-date representation of physical spaces, spatial digital twins are transforming the way we design, operate, and manage a wide range of systems, from smart cities and transportation networks to manufacturing facilities and building complexes. As the technology continues to evolve, spatial digital twins have the potential to transform how we interact with and understand the world around us.

The Spatial Digital Twin Special Interest Group (SDT-SIG) aims to educate, leverage and develop capabilities for surveying and spatial professionals in this emerging technology and to provide highly relevant learning and development opportunities for the geospatial community.

Spatial digital twins

In summary the SDT-SIG aims to:

  • Encourage and promote the advancement of SDT knowledge
  • Establish the Geospatial Council as an effective, trusted and well recognised organisation and hub for surveying and spatial sciences and other Digital Twin experts in Australia
  • Facilitate inclusive and collaborative partnerships – locally, nationally and globally
  • Foster and strengthen information sharing among SDT-SIG Member Agencies, and with government, community, industry and private sectors
  • Enable access to information collected and shared by participants including knowledge of what information exists, and how and where to find it

The Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute formed the DMR-SIG in July 2020 and was chaired by Wayne Patterson. Stay tuned for more information about this SIG!
