Shetland Islands in Minecraft

The Shetland Islands are 32 Scottish islands located 200 km north of Scotland.

Lerwick is the island’s administrative and commercial center, Scalloway is the former capital.

GeoBoxers have created the two towns and parts of their surroundings in Minecraft for a local 2020 project.

Data used

The two Minecraft maps are made from digital terrain data from the Scottish Remote Sensing Portal and mapping data from OpenStreetMap.
