Crafting Crafting is the method by which many blocks, tools, and materials are made in Minecraft. In order to craft something, players must move items from their inventory to a crafting grid. A 2×2 crafting grid can be accessed from the player's inventory.

GLCF: Global Land Survey (GLS) DEM The GLS collection was made possible by the development of more accurate elevation models with global or regional coverage, including the National Elevation Dataset (NED) of the USA, the Canadian Digital Elevation Dataset (CDED) of Canada, the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) covering most of the globe, and the Global 30 Arc Second Elevation Dataset (GTOPO30) covering the northern latitudes. In order to orthorectify the GLS scenes, the above elevation data were coordinated into the GLSDEM product. To enable direct comparison and visualization of the GLSDEM with other Landsat TM and ETM based products, the GLCF produce GLSDEM files in WRS-2 tiles in the GeoTIFF format, UTM projection and WGS84 datum of the corresponding GLS datasets. For each path/row, the original USGS Degree Tiles are mosaicked and subset with a 9km buffer to reproduce GLSDEMs.

Minecraft Wiki.en From its creation, Minecraft was developed almost exclusively by Notch until Jens "Jeb" Bergensten started working with him, and has since become head of its development. It features music by Daniel "C418" Rosenfeld and paintings by Kristoffer Zetterstrand. Initially released as what is now known as Minecraft Classic on May 17, 2009, the game was released as Minecraft 1.0 on November 18, 2011. Since its release, Minecraft has expanded to mobile devices and consoles. On November 6, 2014, Minecraft and all of Mojang's assets were acquired by Microsoft.[26][27] Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with, and modify a dynamically-generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks.

Facts and Figures Image above: The International Space Station's length and width is about the size of a football field. Credit: NASA › View hi-res image The International Space Station marked its 10th anniversary of continuous human occupation on Nov. 2, 2010. Since Expedition 1, which launched Oct. 31, 2000, and docked Nov. 2, the space station has been visited by 215 individuals. At the time of the anniversary, the station’s odometer read more than 1.5 billion statute miles (the equivalent of eight round trips to the Sun), over the course of 57,361 orbits around the Earth. The International Space Station is not only an orbiting laboratory, but also a space port for a variety of international spacecraft.

[Tutorial] Building Tips and Strategies - POST YOUR TREE MODELS! Many players start with the outer walls of a house, like we did in this tutorial. Interior is a difficult topic, because you can't paint a wall with a different color on the inner side, so you have the same wall material on the inside, and the same block for floors and ceilings. To solve this problem, just make separate inner and outer walls, separate floors and ceilings.
