Got data? Earth in Minecraft maps for professionals
GeoBoxers’ maps of Earth in Minecraft are created from all kinds of GIS, geospatial and architectural data. Let us handle the data, so that you can focus on game play, content and user engagement. GeoBoxers’ Minecraft maps can be used directly on your local computer, on online servers, or in Minecraft: Education Edition.
Minecraft has shown to be a very suitable tool for education, urban planning and visualization.
The use of real geographic data in Minecraft models opens a huge and unexplored potential of applications in education, urban and rural planning, architecture and as a “geosocial media”.
Minecraft is gender-neutral, intuitive and easy to learn with high recognizability among children and young people all over the globe and across all social classes. With Minecraft, you get full attention from otherwise hard-to-reach demographic groups with a minimum of effort!
