Enabling planning, testing and monitoring of physical, economic and community structuresServices
Magnasoft provides digital twin mapping services to create 3D digital replicas to plan, test and monitor their physical, economic and community structures. Creating a link between digital and physical spaces, they form the basis of IoT networks that connect smart devices, assets and people. More and more organizations, governments and industries are recognizing the value of Digital Twin solutions, which have become a prerequisite for successfully managing an organization and its assets, being able not only to predict their short-term success, but also showing complex spatial relationships over time.
Magnasoft uses the mCloud 3D Framework that uses digital twin software for urban, corridor and indoor mapping. This Digital Twin software platform delivers 3D maps in the required Level of Detail (LOD) using its proprietary processing tools and libraries giving our customers a wide range of future scalability, unlike other Digital Twin solution providers.

A Digital twin is simply a virtual replica of an existing asset, which converges real-world data with the virtual world to provide output in 3D form. They are produced by specialized digital twin companies that use digital twin software to realize such complex models.
Today, digital twins are primarily used for evaluating the asset and documentation purposes. But this is only the beginning: digital twins will be enablers for many new applications and technologies, enabling new experiences, products and services. One example of the potential of digital twin technology is their connection to the physical space through the use of sensors, which will generate real-time data for measuring the lifecycle of an IoT device. A digital twin enables creating and monitoring of large IoT networks that are directly connected to physical space – realizing a true smart city that monitors and corrects itself using Artificial Intelligence.
Magnasoft provides digital twin mapping services to create digital replicas of physical assets to plan, test and monitor their physical, economic and community structures.
Architecture, Engineering and Construction companies can benefit greatly from a Digital Twin. It enables the collection of all data and documentation produced during design and construction in an intelligent way so that it is not lost but can be shared among different stakeholders, enabling informed decisions and eliminating risk. Similarly, building operators and owners can use a digital twin to monitor the performance of one or more assets and take smart decisions for improved future performance based on key metrics from digital asset data.
Digital twin technology enables Oil and Gas companies to monetize their assets in a better way, by using digital twins by testing new optimization processes before applying them to their physical counterparts, or predict the future through models or let the assets manage themselves through AI technology. Based on the outcome of testing virtual scenarios, an informed decision can be taken. It’s this combination of virtual and real assets, in combination with high-volume sensor data and AI solutions, that makes digital twin technology so powerful.
Digital Twins will play a large role in the realization and functioning of a smart city. In order for governments to improve living conditions, as well as creating new economic opportunities and revitalize the existing community in a city, a framework needs to be in place that allows for monitoring and analyzing the current situation. Digital Twins are a prerequisite for this. More specifically, cities are looking at how digital twins can improve current areas such as energy consumption, waste management, public safety, mobility improvements, and infrastructure management to make a city more economically, socially and culturally sustainable.
Digital twins can be seen as a way to connect indoor and outdoor spaces, providing a bridge between indoor models of physical asset models and their surroundings, resulting in an integral 3D experience of both.Currently, many new digital twin companies are emerging to help businesses making use of digital twin technology and perform digital twin mapping to create the digital replicas that form the basis for new sensor data infrastructure networks. Other emerging application areas for digital twin platforms are city planning, economic and community development, city-level administration, infrastructure maintenance, water supply and sanitation, property assessment and taxation, public health and waste management.
Digital twins are virtual replicas of physical assets, varying from buildings to entire cities in 3D. These are more than data models: they have become intelligent through their combination with real-world entities they represent and model the immediate surroundings and interacting entities, such as humans or devices. By combining software models, data intelligence and real-world assets, new insights can be gained, paving the way for optimized use of assets, saving customers money and helping them make better business decisions.
Digital twin models are created from BIM, a Building Information Model or 3D representation of an asset. These form the basis for creating a digital platform for an organization to manage their assets on. It combines different datasets regarding the assets, surroundings and various records that were created during its design, construction and management phase. A digital twin is different from a BIM as it is designed to hold many datasets at once, as well as generate insights from these and visualize the results in their spatial context. Being able to provide this location information component sets Magnasoft apart as a digital twin mapping company from other digital twin technology providers.
Magnasoft’s digital twin modeling services produce digital twin models with a Level of Detail from LOD 2 to LOD 5, as well as accuracy levels from 3 m up to 15 cm XYZ. We use our inhouse Digital Twin platform for urban, corridor and indoor mapping purposes,which are all specific digital twin use cases. Our digital twin models enable third party integration to digital twin platforms, devices and sensors, including those of well-known digital twin software providers. We can also guarantee data compliance with industry data standards such as CityGML, OSGB, IFC and CityJSON.
Digital twins not only enable organizations to manage their assets better and optimize the use of resources, they also can make predictions for the future and self-manage complex workflows that involve large flows of data and documents that are hard to manage for humans. This way, Digital twins enable the creation of IoT networks and entire smart cities, that improve their citizens’ wellness and safety. For utilities, digital twin technology means that complex decision making processes are improved as Artificial Intelligence automates that process largely. Asset management becomes more manageable and easy
Digital twins are currently used in many industries: Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies use it to manage their assets and improve business decision-making processes, whereas Oil and Gas companies use it to monetize their assets in a better way. This is only the beginning: we are at the start of a new era where organizations are transforming the way they work and interact with their customers, all enabled by the possibilities of Digital twin platforms. Examples are city planning, economic and community development, city-level administration, infrastructure maintenance, water supply and sanitation, property assessment and taxation, public health and waste management.
