Height Maps?

Recommended Posts

I know i sound noobish but I remember seeing some free code on generation 3d terrain from height maps. Im not sure what the technical name is but you have 2 (2d) bmps, one of them shows elevation and the other shows the actual color. Using these two data, there is some alogorithm that generates 3d points. Is there any code i can see? Any links?

Sorry the 2nd one is opengl specific, but that shouldnt matter because its the theory that counts and it shouldnt be that hard to port it to directX.
