The NSW Digital Twin Minimum Viable Product (MVP) platform aims to respond to the NSW State Infrastructure Strategy by developing a 4D (3D+time) Foundation Spatial Data Framework. This includes providing presentation capability which allows visualisation and interrogation of 3D and 4D data models. The goal is to help the NSW Government with infrastructure assets planning and management, integration with land use planning, data collaboration, and sharing.
The project is pushing the technological boundaries of producing, visualising, sharing and consuming 3D and 4D data models within a government environment and data infrastructure ecosystem. It’s a powerful collaboration tool so that governments and industry can better share data, understand it in context and ensure they are working off the same authoritative data sources.
This stage of the NSW Digital Twin development is focused on Western Parkland City and Greater Parramatta and the Olympic Peninsula with the long term objective of enabling collaboration between smart cities precincts. .
The principles of the NSW Digital Twin development are:
The NSW Digital Twin is based on a data federation approach. When you access data through it, you are typically accessing the data directly from its custodian. Most of the custodians are state government departments and agencies.
The NSW Digital Twin Map:

Data: if you are working on spatial datasets (such as CSVs which include geolocation information) and you think they would be beneficial, you can contact the NSW Digital Twin Map product owner within the NSW Government Department of Customer Service (NSW Spatial Services) and suggest their inclusion in the Data Catalogue. The same process applies if you spot relevant spatial data on other applications, maps or websites, contact us
TerriaJS software: The NSW Digital Twin Map is powered by TerriaJS, an open source software published on GitHub. You can become a contributor to the code or simply suggest new features, by submitting an issue directly in the open repository. Make sure you give a detailed description of the use case for the new functionalities.
The NSW Digital Twin Map is supported by the TerriaJS Open Source software available in Github. The core platform, TerriaJS, was initially developed by Data61 for NationalMap, but has subsequently been used for other projects. It has been made available to assist with the development of other spatial data viewing applications.
