This is virtual Singapore.A detailed map of the city that carries a stunning amount of granular data, room details about how much square footage there is in an individual building to how much sunlight pours through a window on a normal day.The 3D map, part of Singapore’s Smart Nation plan, was created by the French company Dassault Systems.The goal of the project was to pack as much data into the map as technically possible.
The first things that cities are coming in… they are looking to one as a flat world when you look into detailed view of the cities.They are looking to 2D layers of data, so you have files of informations. You have Excel sheets of informations. You have many type of source information which are disconnected.So you can have geospatial information.You can have static informations.All those must be reconciliate in your consistent model.The visual clarity and detail of the map are stunning, but the practical applications are so broad that Singapore officials like George Loh are just starting to understand what this program is capable of.So we could analyze whether which area is prone to flooding during heavy rainfalls or we can use the same platform to analyze the indifferent precincts, how we could add in measures to allow the air flow into precincts to cool down the precincts in hot weather.
