Description

This patch allows the HeightmapLODPlugin to set the skirt length for LOD tiles. The default skirt length is 10m which creates a lot of large polygons beneath the terrain which unnecessarily increases polygon fill burden and makes it difficult to see the DEM LOD behavior when viewing in wireframe.

Reducing skirt length to 0.2m improved framerate by about 50% in my high resolution DEM test case.
