Melbourne’s Fishermans Bend precinct, Australia’s largest urban renewal project,  is using state-of-the-art planning and mapping technology, together with innovative 3D spatial data, to revolutionise the future design of major urban renewal projects.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is working with the University of Melbourne to develop Victoria’s first digital twin – a digital representation of the real world - with analytics tools used to visualise and model past and future scenarios.

The Fishermans Bend digital twin will deliver 3D modelling over time, in locations above and below the ground to drive better, data driven decisions for planning and infrastructure development for Australia’s largest urban renewal project.
