Speaking of grid maps, check out this five-foot long LEGO world map.

[W]e wanted to have a big picture for our living room but couldn’t agree on a motive. At the end of 2015 my wife gave me some blue LEGO baseplates and said, I could build a big world map out of LEGO for the living room. So the idea was born and the starting point for countless evenings of planning was there.

Color represents depth and elevation for oceans and land, respectively. Just 6,090 pieces and 22 hours of building time.
