I just added a section to the main Wikipedia article on the Mandelbrot set, covering creating 3D height maps. Here's the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_Set#3D_images_of_Mandelbrot_and_Julia_sets

What does everybody think? (I've long admired the gallery of zoom images in that article, and have long wanted to create a corresponding gallery of 3D images of the same. I finally took the time to duplicate the whole gallery in 3D and figure out the Wikipedia article syntax well enough to write up a new section.)

Nice.  I hope it doesn't get deleted by zealous editors.  If you can, adding citations helps to prevent that.

I included a couple of links on the Potential function and Distance Estimate formula. I'm hoping that's enough. I just converted those links to citation format, so with any luck that will satisfy the Wiki "citation police."
