This applet is our most complicated one. It uses a several step process to generate realistic 3D fractal landscapes. A plasma fractal is generated at first using the standard algorithm for generating plasma fractals. A scroll bar will allow you to specify how rough you want the landscape to be. The points of the fractal are then graphed in 3D with heights given depending on the value of every point. You have a choice of making the landscape wireframe (points are connected with lines) or rendered (the surface is also colored). The applet also gives you a choice of 2 different color maps. The "volcano" color map is composed mostly of shades of red, orange, and yellow, imitating molten lava. The topographic color map uses the same colors as most maps do. In the top right corner of the applet, you will see the actual fractal displayed. The landscape formed from that fractal will be displayed at the left.
