Some of you, our dear readers, saw the Ordnance Survey’s Minecraft scale version of Great Britain as an opportunity to terrorise portions of this green and pleasant land. Surrounding London with a magma moat was one popular idea, while someone wanted to smash North Ormesby. You are a curious lot. That was only a surface recreation, using the mapping agency’s data to recreate the layer we walk on, but now we can go deeper–either to learn more or to get really destructive.
Building on (or under) that OS scale-model world, the British Geological Survey have released their own Minecraft world with Britain down to the bedrock.
