Refactor 3D terrain handling

From various sources, including Google, it is possible to aquire height data points for an area. It would be good (meaning: easier for the user) if DH created 3D terrain data itself, from these online sources, instead of asking the user to capture it and import it into DH.

    Creating 3D terrain data automatically is a computationally intensive process. But we are looking into many different ways for facilitating the workflows when working with 3D data (terrain or meshes).

    This could increase the security of the flight plans in case of hilly terrain. Drone crash into ascending ground could be prevented by (optionally) adding the terrain data of heights to the flight plan heights.

    Ask the user if permanent cache of these terrain data in combination with the flight plan area is preferred.
