Digital Twin for Developers
18 November 2020, 15:00 - 18:00
Visual 3D models are being deployed in smart cities around the world. While earlier the motivation was mostly on visualizing the buildings, the latest developments will turn the 3D models into a rich source of information related to the urban landscape and built environment.
This Helsinki Loves Developers meetup is a part of webinar series FinEst Twins Digital Twin Masterclass 2020 organized by Forum Virium Helsinki. The webinar series is a masterclass of smart city digital twins, presented by top experts in the field and supported with state of the art showcases from around the world.
One of the goals of the FinEst Twins project is to develop the Digital Twins of Helsinki and Tallinn as joint effort. The work also supports the urban research done in Aalto University and TalTech.
The event related to the digital twin masterclass provides technical introduction to two new elements of the digital twin development: The OGC API for Features that is replacing the WFS API and CityJSON, that is a developer-friendly encoding of the CityGML data model.
