Is there a way to covert back? Minecraft as an editor... :)

ROS users,

I am pleased to announce a new package: minecraft-ros.  It consists of 2 utilities to convert ROS maps and octomaps to Minecraft worlds.

The files and instructions can be found here: https://code.google.com/p/minecraft-ros/

The map_2d_2_minecraft.py script will convert a 2D .pgm map file into a minecraft world. The world file is copied into the ~/.minecraft/saves folder.

The octomap_2_minecraft script, along with the octomap_dump program will convert an octomap into a Minecraft map.

Both these scripts rely on pymclevel.  A chunk of the octomap conversion code is borrowed from Nathan Viniconis' Kinect conversion code.
