The data created by cities can be stored as a digital twin to monitor situations in real time. This doubles as a record keeping system for historical evidence analysis.
The different infrastructure assets can be monitored closely, and manipulated based on the information of population movement, and events in the city.
Urban planning initiatives can be improved using simulation studies along with the feasibility studies. Advanced spatial tools can simulate different project impact on the city and people.
Urban resilience is increasingly importance due to the erratic weather patterns. Spatial tools allows for better storm water management, urban heat islands, noise, and air quality control.
