rayshader: Create and Visualize Hillshaded Maps from Elevation Matrices

Uses a combination of raytracing, spherical texture mapping, lambertian reflectance, and ambient occlusion to produce hillshades of elevation matrices. Includes water detection and layering functions, programmable color palette generation, several built-in textures, 2D and 3D plotting options, and the ability to export 3D maps to a 3D printable format.
