Dr Li Wan has published a new book with ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers) Publishing, alongside co-authors Timea Nochta, Junqing Tang and Jennifer Schooling.

Read an extract from the blurb here:

Digital twin technology has made great strides in the engineering and manufacturing sector over the past decade, however, there remains confusion around what a digital twin is and how they can be utilised successfully at a city scale. Digital Twins for Smart Cities provides conceptual clarity and practical guidance for supporting city-scale digital twin (CDT) development, outlining challenges, showcasing real-life CDT practices globally, and offering socio-technical frameworks to compare CDT projects.

The book has received the following endorsements:

A must read for smart city professionals and leaders.

The book brings welcome clarity to hugely important subjects and I wholeheartedly commend it.

Mark Enzer, Mott MacDonald, UK

Essential reading for those interested in CDT research as well as city planners and managers who apply data and digital models to make decisions about the urban environment.
