It''s based on rectangular tiles, which are just designed to look isometric. These textures are all pre-rendered, so when you save the map, you''re actually just saving a code for each tile to mark what terrain it uses.

This would be better learnt on a Starcraft modding forum, where you can really learn a lot about its file formats, including .scm / .scx files.
