National Digital Twin App
The National Digital Twin Programme in partnership with Esri UK have developed an interactive app that is built on a fictional town and shows what happens in various weather scenarios as a result of different decisions. The app enables users to select isolated or connected digital twins to test how the 2 options affect the outcome of the future of the city affected by a series of severe weather events that cause infrastructure emergencies across the city and damage to utilities. Titled ‘Tomorrow Today’ and directed by BAFTA winning director Colin O’Toole, it all sounds rather dystopian but we can’t wait to play. Watch the video / play here.
