You already know a Minecrafter
Minecraft has more than 100 million registered users worldwide, so chances are that you already know someone who is familiar with the game. Minecraft has proven to be a unique tool to engage children and young people in real-world city problems. GIS and geospatial data come to new life when visualized in Minecraft, and the game lets its users manipulate the game world/data like no other GIS or game. Minecraft is easy to learn (for adults too) and it opens a whole new world of possibilities to engage citizens of all ages in real-life challenges.
