Ordnance Survey recreates great Britain in Minecraft with map data
The UK's main mapping organisation Ordnance Survey has used their extensive terrain data to recreate Great Britain in Minecraft.
Ordnance Survey has built the 86,000 square miles of the Great British mainland in painstaking detail over the course of two weeks.
Manager of OS Innovation Labs, Graham Dunlop said, "We think we may have created the largest Minecraft world ever built based on real-world data. The resulting map shows the massive potential not just for using Minecraft for computer technology and geography purposes in schools, but also the huge scope of applications for OS OpenData too."
All 22 million blocks of the map is available to download from the Ordnance Survey website and is a whopping 3.6GB.
