I think pre-calculating the mesh2 using C++ will speed things up at 
least three orders of magnitude!

I have the whole ASTER elevation data set (3601 by 3601 measuring points 
per square degree!) locally on my external hard disk... and if I get the 
C++ solution running, I'll start uploading pre-calculated mesh2s 
generated from the original ASCII tiles for each data tile onto my webspace!

Compiling? A POV-Ray script? Please explain...

See you in Khyberspace!
