Are you doing a 3D plot? In 3D, the contour is a series of curved surfaces which perhaps "hard to differentiate them" as you said. If you cut out one plane, and do a 2D contour, it would be much clearer. Enjoy!

wolle1982 will become famous soon enough
do you use the "sample" tool ??? lookup forum. you can plot over a contour via several lines. give them different names to be able to tell them apart.
