Spatial data, including the location of essential infrastructure is critical for supporting emergency services operations. The recent NSW Independent Bushfire Inquiry on the 2019/2020 bushfires reinforced the need for telecommunications and utility infrastructure data, identifying it could inform risk and resilience decisions in the location and protection of essential utilities infrastructure in emergency situations.
Infrastructure data is typically sensitive from both a commercial and security perspective. For organisations to confidently share their data to support emergency services operations, requirements include that it is secured, only accessed by authorised users, for approved purposes.
Spatial Digital Twins are data infrastructures designed and developed to support these data sharing requirements, for a range of infrastructure data types including 3D and 4D geospatial data and building information models (BIM).
This presentation will introduce Spatial Digital Twins, and how they are being used to securely share authoritative infrastructure data for emergency services operations.
