Capturing the built world and how to use it.

Webinar: 12th October 2022/12-1 pm GMT

Surveytech in partnership with Matterport will be presenting a practical webinar on 'How to Create Your First Digital Twin' featuring guest speakers Anil Sawhney from RICS and Stuart Leche from C9VT, moderated by Kate Bygrave from UK Construction Marketing and hosted by Surveytech's MD, Matt Lacey:

  • History of digital twin technology
  • What is a digital twin? 
  • How are digital twins used?
  • Understanding BIM
  • What is Point Cloud Technology?
  • How do we see digital twins working in the design and construction phases?

Professor of Computer Science David Gelernter, at Yale University, stated 30 years ago ‘we will be able to see reality on our computer screen’ one day. To put it simply, digital twins are virtual representations of real-world entities and processes synchronised at a specified frequency. Used across many economic sectors, a digital twin is as good and as reliable as the data connected to it. So how do you go about creating your first digital twin and what would the processes be?
