I am using the ocean surface model from, which has a model of the ocean surface that is about 1km by 1km. I need many tens of km by tens of kms for my simulation. What's the best way to create a repeating model in a world file, I require too many to simply copy and paste.

If the other answers arent satisfactory, you can use a xml generator module in python(like xml) and write a script to automatically generate a world file for you - this has the advantage of being programatically altered.

You can try using population which will put your model in multiple places, depending on the distribution. I think grid should match your application.
