Joachim Wilhelm from the Department of Urban Development and Uwe Schmeer, Head of the Department of Graphic Data Processing, report in the “Rheinpfalz” paper about the 3D geoportal of the city of Kaiserslautern.
Since 2009, the city of Kaiserslautern has been steadily expanding its 3D city model. Starting with a laser scan survey to generate the 3D objects in the entire city area, the city’s Digital Twin now has a solar potential analysis, the VC Planner and multi-faceted geodata to provide visual and analytical support for the city administration.
In particular, the vacancy register and the publicly accessible development plans are proving to be of interest to citizens. The Digital Twin proves to be a central information platform and hub for cross-domain work in the city.
Likewise, the Digital Twin serves ideally for urban planning. With the help of the digital planning tool VC Planner, various scenarios can be easily displayed in the context of the surrounding development. A helpful tool when it comes to communicating planning with the public and better understanding impacts on the surrounding area.
