Dear all,
I am a new GM user, I have my own xyz data (shape file format). So how can I generate contour from that data?
Please give me some advice?

    If your data is an Esri Shapefile with XYZ data, after loading it in Global Mapper create an elevation grid from it by right-clicking on the layer in the Control Center and selecting to create an elevation grid, then you can generate contours from that using File->Generate Contours.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
