I am now reading a paper titled "An object-oriented framework for distributed hydrologic and geomorphic modeling using triangulated irregular networks" because I found out that academic geologists totally had quantitative models that generate river meandering like thirteen years ago. And I need to understand their code's weird ad hoc output format.

Anyway I am trying to squeeze all the fun I can out of unemployment while it lasts.

Nah, that paper didn't tell me much, other than "hai guise we are doing Delaunay Triangulation" which I knew anyway. Time to dive into the code.

Ok, got the code running, and did a completely stupid simple isometric output with a perl script into postscript, and got the following image by converting to to svg, and taking a screenshot in inkscape.

Looks pretty decent to me so far. Alls I want to do is import an existing sketch of an elevation map into it, and then run it for a while.
