Abstract

How can city digital twins support the attainment of SDG11? They can be used to manage infrastructures (e.g. roads, transportation and public services, smarter energy grids and water networks), support planning and decisionmaking, as well as to provide up-to-date data for simulations and resource allocation. However, city digital twins (DTs) are not without their challenges in terms of creation and implementation. This article includes three recent examples of city digital twins that have been successfully developed and implemented.
