The Australia New Zealand Digital Twin Blueprint

This Blueprint has been created to influence action and investment in Digital Twins within the built and natural environment in both Australia and New Zealand. We use the catchphrase 'digital twins, for all' as the SCC strongly believed this is a data activation opportunity for every government, every agency, every sector and every discipline.


A key goal is to build a Digital Twin ‘marketplace’ - with good demand for and supply of Digital Twin capability. Therefore we have identified policy makers, practitioners and researchers as our key audience.


This document is a Blueprint only, and many tasks are yet to be completed by the SCC and others to turn it into a strategy. In the interim it is anticipated this document will be used in the following ways:

  • Policy makers will use it to shape their policy making, program design and support initiatives

  • Practitioners and advisors will use it to align their advice and support to clients

  • Vendors will use it to align their products and services, and their evolving innovations in data activation

  • Academics will use it identify education and research opportunities

  • Asset owners and operators will use it to seek opportunities to improve performance and inform investments.

This Blueprint is draft only and it is important that stakeholders express their views on the proposed recommendations that are contained within it. This will help improve on what we have created, and allow a more comprehensive final Blueprint to be published later this year.


Feedback can be shared with the Smart Cities Council prior to Friday 27 August 5:00pm AEST.
