Guidelines
The goal of this thesis is to implement an application that would allow users to create procedurally generated terrains by sketching polygonal areas with defined terrain properties. Individual polygonal areas will be blended together to create a rough heightmap that can be subsequently edited by using brush operations.

Advanced terrain generation techniques shall be explored, e.g., terrain erosion simulation, riverbed generation, etc., with at least one of them being implemented. The application should allow users to export the finished heightmap for further use as well as preview the terrain in 3D.

The source code has to be well commented and supplemented with detailed user and programmer's documentation.
