Cellular Automata_(non-directional growth model_incorporating height map)
This is our 2nd attempt in creating a cellular automata model that incorporates the use of height map.
Three algorithms are applied in this model:
1 – the growth is bounded by the altitude of the map, ie. only grow in light colour areas
2 – in darker areas (apart from solid black), the growth will override the darker colour boundary when more than 5 neighbouring cells are “switched on”
3 – the growth is triggered by mouse clicks in any parts of the map
