    With your SRTM DEM data loaded you have the following options:
    • To create contour lines or areas, use Analysis | Generate Contours (from Terrain Grid)
    • To create a set of points for the grid, select your layer in the Control Center, right-click and choose Layer | Create Point Features at Elevation Grid Cell Centers
    Once you have created the lines or points, select the associated vector layer in the Control Center and choose Layer | EXPORT - Export Layer(s) to a New File and choose Shapefile from the list.
