For who and when?
Verkkosaari area is located in Helsinki, north of the Kalasatama area and it continues downtown to Arabianranta. A digital twin on Verkkosaari was created based on a building information model and a compilation model. The goal was to visualize how streets, squares and buildings co-exist in the area.
Another goal was to combine the digital twin with building information of the surrounding city structure produced by the city of Helsinki. The digital twin was created with the game engine technology service AURA. With AURA the user can freely move around by walking, driving or flying and also examine for example the effects of natural light in the street areas.
