Adding cliffs from Karttapullautin

The Karttapullautin generates cliff data and saves in the c2g.dxfand c3g.dxf files. These files represent passable rock faces and impassable cliffs respectively.

The cliff files can be added to a Open Street Map as a template.

The Karttapullautin cliffs are represented a mass of short lines.
