Minecraft Manhattan

Last month the Ordnance Survey released a Minecraft world of the UK using OS Open Data maps. Now New York is getting in on the act.

SparseWorld is creating a huge Minecraft map of New York. The Minecraft world is created using elevation, landcover and orthography data from USGS, 3d buildings from Google Earth and street mapping from OpenStreetMap.

You don't even have to have Minecraft to view the results as a real-time interactive server map is also available of the New York world.
