|Fractal systems repeat the same type of features on smaller and smaller scales when you look closer and closer. Mountains are a natural example of this - a mountain range is rugged - a mountain is rugged - a valley on the mountain is rugged - and the rocks in the valley on the mountain are rugged. This applet allows you to generate fractal terrain and view it from different angles, from three different "floor plans": triangle, square, and hexagon.|
