“A National Digital Infrastructure Model is the key to unlocking something radically new that challenges conventional wisdom and will help meet New Zealand’s future requirements. It will put people at heart of infrastructure building, improve access to and consistency of data, promote innovation, and position the centres of New Zealand as smart and resilient cities of the future.” (Infrastructure New Zealand Digital Twin Working Group)
The New Zealand Infrastructure Think Tank - Infrastructure New Zealand - has published a paper outlining its intent, and the value of, building a National Digital Infrastructure Model (NDIM).
Infrastructure New Zealand, the author of the paper, highlights not only the value of high-quality data in infrastructure development, but also the ability to facilitate the sharing of data which unlocks a range of benefits - including greater efficiencies, spurring innovation and enabling the broader digital economy.
