create_landscape.py

For rendering a map of east Germany, I've automated most of the steps that are described in the Landscape Guide into a Python program:

https://github.com/flxhu/condor2#create_landscapepy

It is able to automatically generate the heightmap input from the USGS DEM data, texture tiles from a GeoTIFF DOP, and forests, water and thermal map from OpenStreetMap data. All three parts can be used independently.

As it does not cover 100% of the workflow, and needs a few clicks in LandscapeEditor and WaterAlpha, an understanding of the general workflow as described in the Landscape Guide is still required. But I think it can be a huge time saver if you want to generate a new Landscape.
