Denmark in Minecraft
An entire 1:1 replica of Denmark (including buildings) recreated in Minecraft by the country’s Ministry of Environment - Google Translate quote below:
Geodatastyrelsens data is released, and now we have also put them into Minecraft.

This isn’t the first time geodata has been converted into a Minecraft-compatible world - the UK’s Ordnance Survey last year put together data covering England [link], but it is a far more basic conersion compared to the additional details you can see in Denmark’s efforts.
