Re: drawing of contour plots
one thing to be tried imagine you have data like this in data.dat

[X Y Value ] for i = 1 to n. on gnuplot (in linux or if installed on windows) the command will be

splot data.dat

(on gnuplot command prompt)

you can check further help on gnuplot by typing help (that how to add labels etc)
