Following the increasing awareness of the potential of digital twin technology, the global market size of this technology is expected to grow substantially.
WGIC identifies guidelines and recommendations for the geospatial industry to continue to add value to the digital twin ecosystem.
The assessment of the digital twin technology development level allows a clearer understanding of the challenges, trends, and capability and capacity for its deployment. Reliable insights on this help to better understand the challenges of this new technology to address them effectively. In brief, these are the aspects of the current spatial digital twin assessment covered in the World Geospatial Industry Council’s (WGIC) recently released policy report.
