Description

Dutch Flat Mathematica's ListPlot3D can be used to render landscapes derived from the US Geological Survey "digital elevation model" (DEM) files. The techniques employed here are memory-intensive and slow, but the results are beautiful. Two (contiguous) sample DEMs may be downloaded as a point of beginning. Other sources are documented within the Digital Landscapes.nb notebook.
