No one said anything about writing binary data.
(but yes you can with POV-Ray)

Now, tell the truth.  You and Sven are brothers, or at least cousins.

Perhaps there is a feature of MeshLab or PoseRay or an STL-file software,
perhaps Blender - that can take an image map and convert it into a mesh.
There are some cloud computing solutions out there - maybe look into those.

Perhaps Maurice already has some sort of tool in Blender that can easily handle
this.

The next question is: do you really need this kind of extreme resolution?
At this point?

Can you simply use a heightfield, or a smaller image, or step through the image
every nth pixel?

I just looked at your old mesh file, and it's 24+MB.   That's a ton of
information for a single tile.
