Also in TextMapper similarly. However, his native Switzerland and Australia are somewhat different in size and smoothness.

You can see the power law distribution dropoff for Australian terrain, whereas Switzerland is much more elevated. e.g. Australia is an old, worn down continent, geologically.

A few different terrain types I think:

  • Coastal
  • Mountain
  • Desert
  • Rainforest
  • Heavy Bush
  • Bush
  • Alluvial
  • Grassland
  • Volcanic – for Lord Howe Island, or as the more egotistical residents like to term it, Ruby Base
  • Pine – for venturing to Norfolk Island
