Is it possible to generate contour map layer at runtime and overlap or project on google maps.

I am using google map api v3 and want to generate contour map layer using data from sql server and project on google map.

Thank you in advance.

is this contour data more detailed than the terrain layer in google maps? like maps.google.com/… –  Mapperz Jun 21 '12 at 13:33
    
Yes @Mapperz . We have only data for specific area that is coordinate and the height value for the the coordinate coming from database –  Gunner Jun 22 '12 at 11:52

Would generate the contours to KML or GeoJSON and add as a layer. GlobalMapper can create the contours from points with height elevation - bluemarblegeo.com/global-mapper –  Mapperz Jun 22 '12 at 13:13
    
Thanks @Mapperz Instead of using third party tool is there any java-script or C# code that can convert the x,y,height to shp file. –  Gunner Jun 22 '12 at 14:01
    
@Mapperz even something like heat map that plot the values in different color layers might work, i guess. –  Gunner Jun 22 '12 at 14:14
