Lego maps

John Nelson‘s blog post on Lego-ified maps inspired me to play around with some satellite imagery myself. John’s description of the process is very clear and easy to follow. The only thing I’d add is a recommendation to use a graphics software that has a function to “Pixelate” or “Downsample” images. I used Paint.net on Windows. Using “Pixelate” it can downsample the background images to a resolution of 30 pixels in one quick step.

But let’s see some maps:
