The French national mapping agency, Institut national de l’information géographique et forestière (IGN), decided to develop a new web service, called Minecraft on Demand (www.ign.fr/Minecraft), designed to provide Minecraft maps from the geographic data that IGN produces. This free web service enables the user to select the center of the map and to get a Minecraft world of 5 km long and 5 km wide, at the scale 1 : 1. The player can easily input this map into Minecraft, the world’s most popular video game with 121 million copies sold. Launched in June 2016 in France, the service Minecraft® on Demand obtained a fair success (10,000 maps downloaded), more specifically among young people, since it may enable them to discover IGN data and geography.
