GIS creates digital twins of the natural and built environments

Digital twins allow you to design and test creation virtually so that you can understand and plan better before building them in the physical world. This is key for cities to enhance planning and ensure sustainability of infrastructure.

Geospatial information system (GIS) technology is fundamental for digital twins. Esri's GIS interconnects information, systems, models, and behaviors through a spatial context, creating holistic digital representations of environments, assets, networks, and cities.

Join us for this webinar series as we present you with a step-by-step guide to creating digital twins.

Session 1

Getting Started: Jump-Start Your Digital Twin with Reality Capture

Date: May 20, 2021

Time: Webinar has Ended

Location: Online, Asia Pacific

Cost: Free

Language: English

This session demonstrates how you can use a complete reality capture workflow, which enables you to jump-start a digital twin of your infrastructure project on a blank canvas. Site Scan for ArcGIS is used as the drone mapping software for acquiring and processing drone imagery, working with resultant data products, and managing assets.

Session 2

Refining Your Digital Twin with Field Data

Date: June 24, 2021

Time: 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (GMT +8)

Location: Online, Asia Pacific

Cost: Free

Language: English

Continuing from our first session, which focused on reality capture for site characterization, we will now move to the next logical step—field operations and data capture. In this session, we will focus on collecting more details from the field to capture critical observations necessary to support architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) projects related to asset management and the development of digital twins.

Specifically, we will cover technical concepts related to field operation activities by leveraging ArcGIS Field Maps, ArcGIS Survey123, and ArcGIS QuickCapture

Session 3

Gaining Insights with Real-Time Observations

Date: July 29, 2021

Time: 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (GMT +8)

Location: Online, Asia Pacific

Cost: Free

Language: English

In this session we will cover the growing need to integrate real-time Internet of Things (IoT) data into our GIS environment in order to build a continuous pipeline of critical data to bring our digital twin concept to life.

Specifically, we will cover how users can gain access to these real-time data feeds using ArcGIS Velocity.

Session 4

Advancing Spatial Analysis with GeoAI

Date: September 9, 2021

Time: 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (GMT +8)

Location: Online, Asia Pacific

Cost: Free

Language: English

Intelligent automation is key to developing repeatable solutions that can be massively scaled. Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly accessible. In this session, we will explore the use of geospatial artificial intelligence (GeoAI) to extract existing observations and support future predictions as we stream in new data for our digital twins.

Session 5

Communicating through Your Digital Twin: Grow Data Access and Transparency

Date: October 14, 2021

Time: 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (GMT +8)

Location: Online, Asia Pacific

Cost: Free

Language: English

In this session we will wrap up our digital twin series by exploring how we [change to "to"?] best integrate and communicate critical design and engineering data through ArcGIS [note: stet only if this is referring to the product ArcGIS Platform. Per Esri Product Naming Guide, "platform" is not to be used generically with the ArcGIS name]. Specifically, we will cover the recent release of ArcGIS GeoBIM as well as discuss some of the collaboration and digital delivery capabilities of the ArcGIS ecosystem.
