Provides functions for generating mountain-like terrain structure using a random walk algorithm. Inspired by Pickover's 1998 article "Vacation on Mars". The data can be output as an ascii-format PLY file, or viewed "overhead" as an intensity graph. The PLY file can be loaded into a 3D modeling program such as Blender.
