WORKSHOP C: DIGITAL TWINS WITHIN THE RESOURCES SECTOR: A SPATIAL PERSPECTIVE

With industry starting on or already a way down a digital twin path, the presentation explores the use of spatial data as a key component to a digital twin.

Examining the form of which a digital using spatial datasets can form, concepts such as Level of Detail and spatial datasets are explained and applied to real word examples.

It is also described that even the basic of digital twins can be used to optimise plant performance, either through personnel time savings or using connectivity with smart sensors.
