This can be used as an alternate climate coloring in the latest version of Fractal Terrains. You just have to choose your sea color.

Used as a coloring layer in photoshop with a wilbur terrain texture it produced the effect on the attached map:

So how does this get mapped? By altitude and latitude, or something else?

Looks like Cold (left) to warm (right), and dry (top) to wet (bottom).

So it takes two greyscale maps, temperature and moisture, and picks the colours based on that funny looking image?

In FTPro, it's based on climate (temperature and rainfall models) and applied under Map>>Show Other Shader>>Show Image Climate. Terraformer (by Bill Roach and available for free from Pro Fantasy) has several dozen of these images along with several Cloud/Weather Pattern Overlays. As for how it was accomplished in Photoshop, a2area would have to explain that.
