The CIO Strategy Council is proud to announce the publishing of a new national standard on the Discovery of Digital Twins. This is the first standard in a series that will provide a shared set of criteria that will encourage interoperability, collaboration and support commercialization and advancement of the development and management of digital twins. Digital twins are becoming a vital planning tool for cities and the market for them is growing rapidly. Digital twins have the ability to revolutionize the way we build, access and navigate cities and have the potential for endless applications including reducing barriers and improving safety and accessibility of cities.
The standard, CAN/CIOSC 106-1: Connected Cities: Part 1 – Discovery of Digital Twins, is available on the CIO Strategy Council website for download.
The CIO Strategy Council will now launch the development of the next standards in this series that will continue to accelerate the development, adoption and management of digital twins. We invite you to provide your ideas on next steps for standardization by joining our technical committee on Connected Cities (TC6).

“This standard takes us a step closer to the realization of accessible Digital Twins for the built environment by providing a common vocabulary for referring to their core concepts and components.”
– Mark S. Fox, Director, Urban Data Centre in the School of Cities, University of Toronto
“We are excited to publish this standard and kick off the important work of building out the series to support the adoption of accessible Digital Twins for the built environment. We look forward to continuing to work with the technical committee on connected cities.”
