Virtual Singapore could be test bed for planners, and plotters

With the click of a button, Singapore’s security forces could soon use a digital version of the city-state to simulate a bomb threat at a sports stadium and learn how to respond if there was a real attack. Yet officials worry that “Virtual Singapore” available soon to state agencies before an eventual public rollout could also aid would-be terror plotters which the government says have their sights set on the wealthy island-state.

This is just one of many security conundrums facing developers of the 3D model that will be fed by big data and assist in everything from urban planning to disaster mitigation in the city of 5.6 million people. Developers and experts say the scheme is one of the most ambitious of its kind and will be watched by other cities hoping to use new technologies to improve the lives of citizens.
