Stakeholder engagement with a VR digital twin

For large organisations, the ability to remotely access a full-scale replica of business operations at any time and any place provides a competitive edge when it comes to making informed business and operational decisions.

However, technology is quickly advancing and understanding the benefits of these advancements is critical to enabling your organisation to stay ahead of the competitive curve.

The value of visualisation, data integration and user-ease in the digital twin environment is deeply understood and appreciated in sectors like mining, infrastructure and planning, utilities, and smart city development. And as more industries adopt this technology the demand is growing for increased capabilities.

Geospatial visualisation advancements are now enabling organisations to quickly integrate large and varied datasets to build precision digital twin environments that can easily be integrated with Virtual Reality (VR) technology. 

VR within your digital twin environment unlocks a range of operational possibilities including:

  • Induction and training: Orient your team using virtual digital twins of sites, machinery, and hazardous situations before they are deployed onsite.
  • Show and tell: Share a VR tour of your operations with internal and external company stakeholders and allow them to gain a “smart perspective” of your environment.
  • Think in 3D: Real life is not 2D. Enable your clients, team members and the community to make better decisions based on VR enabled digital twin environments that provide an immersible 3D space. 


Skyline, a digital twin solution, helps organisations integrate extensive, real-time data with advanced visualisation and animation capabilities to provide detailed and immersive outputs for the end user.  Skyline offers users plug-and-play VR experiences, simulations and models that enable organisations to:

  • Enhance stakeholder engagement with fly-throughs and media production capability
  • Integrate 3D models with designs and operational data
  • Display live, streaming GIS data sources within the VR environment
