LEGO New York, 3D Design Based on Maps & Satellite Imagery

Lego New York by JR Schmidt

New York 3D artist and motion designer J.R. Schmidt created a beautiful 3D LEGO New York topographical design by using various elevation maps and satellite images of New York (as seen below) to properly set the elevation and colors of his rendered LEGO blocks. Prints, cards and iPhone cases / skins are available to purchase from Society6. You can also download a high-res wallpaper of the design on Dribble.
