An Urban Digital Twin is a 3D virtual replica of the real-world built environment, connected to massive amounts of data and software tools. This has almost limitless capabilities and development potential. Some examples of data overlays include ​Historical and Cultural site locations and information, real-time traffic monitoring, parking availability monitoring, temperature and airflow metrics, CCTV connectivity and feed overlays​, simulations for solar radiation studies, shadow analysis, rainfall, floods and more​.
