Fire up Wilbur, load the DEM of your choice, and use Texture>>Other Maps>>World Flood.
Is there a Wilbur user out there who wants to take this on or collaborate?

Don'tcha just hate it when someone's already done it!!! :((

Anyway - I'm still enjoying doing my own POVRay version and I can release it under CC so... we'll see if it's any good, assuming I finish it.
30 entries, so 2 thirds of what is needed, and at least one wont finish, in my opinion we should postpone the challenge to the new year - Make a deadline in january and move the potential exibition to february (or what ever is possible).
- its is much better to postpone to get good entries instead of hurried entries
- NY maps won't be time critical - an exibition would work just as well later as now
- we will be more "serious" when we won't make a bad exhibit but actually want to be presented best possible.
- we'll never hit 45 maps in 5 days
- by expanding the timelimit some people (like me) might do more than one map :)
in addition to expanding the deadline, I think it would be prudent to run new challenges as well, so the NY challenge will be a "side-challenge".
what do you guys think?
@Torstan - what will the gallery think?
We have 12 days don't we? Not sure I can finish mine in 5 days. The rules did say if we didn't have the full number of maps the show would run at a later date. At this point I'm guessing it's doubtful that we will have 45 maps by the end of month.
its the 19th here - and the challenges usually end on the 25th (in theory) - so I rounded down I guess ;)
This one runs to the 31st so, 12 days still. I'll chat to the gallery and see. The advantage of running it through the end of November and early December is the holiday season when the gallery will get good audiences and potential customers for prints, whereas the new year is notoriously quiet as people get back from holiday and are head down at work.
So what exactly happens if we don't get the maps we need? I'm thinking if this thing gets bumped for a couple months I may just jump back to square one and do the map I really wanted to do all along.
that means we have to sacrifice a cartographer to the mapping gods to appease them ;)
