Terraform: The Open Source Interactive Height Field Generation and Manipulation Program
Entry ID: TERRAFORM

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Terraform is an open source interactive height field generation and
manipulation program, giving you the ability to generate random terrain and
transform it. Terraform runs under Linux and other UNIX systems under the X11
Windowing system. It uses the GNOME desktop platform and thus has a (more or
less) consistent graphical user interface which doesn't require use of the
command line.

Terraform allows you to generate random terrain using a number of algorithms
and then selectively change the terrain using a variety of transformations.
Where possible, the transformations provide a real-time preview, giving you
instant feedback on the effect of any parameter changes.
