Mathematical transformation combined with our extensive geodesy know-how allow landscapes, cities, mines etc. to unfold in 3D; in high quality and without manual intervention. Our approach and experience opens up new possibilities to introduce the real world in gaming for education, citizen involvement, tourism… and fun.

Inspiration – how to use  GIS and geospatial data in Minecraft.

GeoBoxers is a Danish company founded by Simon Lyngby Kokkendorff, Thorbjørn Nielsen and Nynne Sole Dalå, all experts in our own field within the world of geodata.

To this day it remains the single largest application of geodata for gamification worldwide.
