Of course you can already visit Rotterdam digitally with Google Streetview. Rotterdam 3D and 3D Digital Twin are truly "the next step". With Rotterdam3D you travel through Rotterdam and you can see, for example, what function a building has and how high the surrounding buildings are. Then you would immediately know whether you can and would want to live there. 3D Digital Twin goes even further. This connects you to the city in real time.

Social, physical and digital reality in one

3D Rotterdam and 3D Digital Twin are part of what is called Rotterdam as a Digital City. Social and physical reality come together here with digital reality. Is the trash can full? Digital City will show that. Looking for a parking space? Check Digital City. And why doesn’t tram line 8 run? The Digital City will show you that there has been an accident on the Kleiweg. The Digital City shows what is happening in Rotterdam at that exact time. With amazing results for the residents and its visitors to be had.

3D Digital Twin makes Rotterdam visible and transparent

Let us give a few more examples of 3D Digital Twin’s uses. Imagine you are an architect, and you have to design a building and you want to research the shadow effect of surrounding buildings throughout the year. 3D Digital Twin can show you exactly that! Are there residents who want to participate in the design in their street? Through Digital Twin, they can see where water pipes are placed and therefore planting a tree in that particular spot is not a good idea. The same applies for Rotterdam citizens with building plans fort heir residential area. They can digitally submit their plan in the Digital Twin and directly apply for a permit. Even the fire brigade, on their way to a fire, can use the 3D Digital Twin. They can see an integrated 3D model of the building that they have to enter in a few minutes. And are you planning to walk alongside one of the many construction sites in Rotterdam? On the QR code on the building board you can see the building that will be soon realized there. This and much more, is all possible with the 3D Digital Twin platform. 3D Digital Twin is still in development, but will be a reality in 2022. 3D Rotterdam is already there, just take a look at www.3drotterdam.nl.
