Hi there,

is there a way to fill up sink holes in a heightmap using macros or other means? Right now I export to Wilbur, fill up the holes and go back to wm2 using 16bit png files. It would be nice to have a device for it, but perhaps it´s not going to happen in a procedural generated environment. I´m neither a mathematical competent person nor do I have programming experience. I think the two go hand in hand ;)
I read  "Planchon, O. and Darboux, F., 2001. A fast, simple and versatile algorithm to fill the depressions of digital elevation models" as suggested on Joe Slayton´s homepage , got a headache and a little understanding.
So I ask if this would be possible in wm2, perhaps with a masked input to define the area?
