Fractal landscape generator/viewer

Terraform is a height field generation and manipulation program that lets users generate and transform random fractal terrains. Users generate random terrain using various algorithms and then selectively change the terrain using various transformations. Where possible, the transformations provide a real-time preview, giving users instant feedback on the effect of any parameter changes.
