Cities need to plan for the future and Dassault Systèmes is working with many of them deploying technology to create and evolve 3D digital city models. These are used as a central reference point for local government, urban planners, architects and citizens. 3D models help them define the future of cites based on ‘what if’ scenarios that the technology simulates. These can cover for example, heath provision, mobility and security.
Simulating cities and their services means they can can become de-compartmentalized and considered as whole inter-related entities. This new perspective integrates formerly disparate departments making them better informed, more efficient and able to visualize potential futures with greater accuracy.
