Officials from Dassault Systems, whom the Chief Minister met during the World Economic Forum in Davos also presented their Virtual 3D city proposal. The Chief Minister was informed that the implementation of the Virtual 3D system would help in providing live data of all the happenings in the city to the Government database and can be used to show real-time visuals. This system would be helpful for monitoring and surveillance purposes. The Virtual 3D system would also help in planning and preparation for any impending natural disasters and can provide the government with live data on people’s opinions and pulse using real-time tracking.
The Chief Minister said that he wants the designs and visualizations to be futuristic and advised to take the best models available from all over the world and simulate it in real time. He further said that this is an exciting project and he wants it to be built in a way that gives scopes for future development as well. He also asked officials from Dassault Systems to prepare a demo of Virtual 3D City so that it can be demonstrated at the Happy Cities Summit in April.
