Minecraft: The Gamification of GIS BigData

So in this short post I am integrating 4 things that I love the most - GIS, Hadoop, BigMemory and Minecraft - The idea is the following, I would like to visualize in Minecraft the result of Kernel Density calculation performed by Hadoop.  The job output is placed into distributed memory rather than back into HDFS in such that a Minecraft server can read that memory and populate a world that I have teleported into.

Here is a short video that showcases the last steps after I started the BigMemory server and ran the Hadoop Job.
Like usual all the source code is available here.
