Get access to virtual Sweden

The municipal maps in Minecraft are based on Lantmäteriet 's national maps and elevation data. This gives you access to a virtual version of Sweden where you can play. The maps contain, for example, details about watercourses, lakes, place names, roads, railways, land and forests. The maps also contain a function for teleportation to make it easier to find your city and district.
