The example below is a Java applet which calculates a fractal fBm surface based on repeated random faults or cuts and displays it as a grayscale image. The image does not wraparound in either x or y. The source code is adapted from Aurel Balmosan's 'faultmap' program posted to Usenet, with significant changes based on my work with John Olsson's Fractal Worldmap Generator.
This example illustrates simple fractal faulting. This method does take quite a bit of time to execute (this example uses 10000 faults or cuts to generate the surface.)
