Join Orlando Economic Partnership President & CEO Tim Giuliani to learn how a first-of-its-kind 800-square-mile digital twin is transforming economic and community development, collaboration between municipalities, private companies and nonprofits and how attendees can harness this innovative tech to solve regional challenges. Discover how the Unity-developed platform used in 100+ presentations visualizes and models the impact of new development, infrastructure and services by incorporating data from dozens of sources, including municipal and federal, to reveal demographics and more. Audience members will gain valuable insight on the practical applications of digital twins at this scale including how this first-of-its-kind digital twin creates an innovative way to sell a region while enabling city planning on a deeper level, how utility companies and city planners can map out proposed infrastructure improvements on a holographic display, and how stakeholders can upload their own data to create rich 3D models for different simulations, such as climate change, transit routes and more.
