Minecraft as Planning Tool!

The map was generated from LIDAR data – accurately representing the heights of everything from the ground up. It was then combined with street map data to judge whether there was a building, tree, street or in our case river.

As it is accurate, then it is useful to use as a visualisation tool for any planning ideas. A fountain in the Market Place would be lovely to sit near!

Fen Pumpkins

“I love how pumpkins carpet the Fen fields in the autumn. They glow burning orange in the weakening sun. Way too delicious to carve and throw away.”
