The file starts with two long's, telling the width and height of the data. Following is a byte telling what kind of storage we use for data: 0x00 for byte, 0x01 for short, 0x02 for int, and 0x03 for long. The rest of the file is the data. The whole file is GZipped to save space.
What is this file used for?
The file is made for my terrain generator for Minecraft. It is basically a heightmap, and can therefore be used for anything from terrain imagery to video game levels. I will release an API one of the coming days.

Of course, i don't think that is big enough, it is only 1/35000~th of the earth's size, so i am scaling down earth by a big amount. I wanted to go bigger, after all, i have the storage and computing power to do it on my server over night :D. The next size up is 21600x10800. That is consitherabily larger, in fact, it is 233280 square kilometers, or 1/2200th of earth, which is consitherabily larger, but still, size matters. I could just scale up the image 2200 times and use blur to estimate the new datapoints, but i found something better: 86400x43200. That is 3732480 square Kilometers, or 1:136 of the earth. The plan is to generate the entire map of the earth in the largest scale i can do with the RAM in my servers, i dont really want my pc with 8x the ram staying up all night, to generate the biggest Minecraft map ever made. Then, while generating, i will add terrain features, such as trees, and ores, to the map. Then, i will save it, and upload it somewhere. This will be fun.
I did some new calculations, and the figures are smaller then i expected. This is because of me being me, and not remembering that 1000 m^2 != 1 km^2. Damn. The biggest heightmap is "only" 136 000 times smalller then the earth. Fuck :(. Oh well, some interpolation should fix it... Also, i calculated the map size from my current heightmap. It turned out to be 291 GB. Woah!
