The NSW government’s spatial digital twin project has received an Australian Information Industry Association iAward.

The iAwards are run annually by the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), Australia’s peak representative body for innovation technology — the country’s longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, according to the organisers.

AIIA CEO, Ron Gauci, said: “The calibre of entrants we saw this year was astonishing. We are proud to recognise all our entrants, and in particular, the winners as they are a demonstration of companies who are making a difference in the world and have the potential
to create positive change for the community – whether this be at home, in the office or on a global scale.”

Spatial Services’ spatial digital twin project, developed with CSIRO’s Data61, took out the government category for its spatial data-rich 4D modelling platform covering eight LGAs in western Sydnety, comprising the Greater Parramatta area, Western Parkland City and the Olympic peninsula. The platform models cadastral data, high resolution point clouds, 3D aerial imagery, BIM models and digital engineering assets and live API feeds.

The winners of the 2020 AIIA iAwards by category are:

● Technology Platforms – Cogniss
● Government – NSW Spatial Digital Twin
● Education – Talk to the Hand – Learn AUSLAN
● Not-For-Profit – End Street Sleeping
● Start-Ups – Contactile
● Industry Solutions – BeFAQT

Congratulations to NSW Spatial Services and Data61!
