Beyond the use of specific tools for inspecting line and grid data, there is the straight forward possibility to create all sorts of plots and graphics with the help of the great Generic Mapping Tools. Like the example map, which can be created from scratch within not much more than one minute from line and grid data. Such a map can be inspected on-screen or after printing and maps with specific properties like shadowing, first and higher derivatives can be produced easily.

Any map produced with the Generic Mapping Tools, or even other graphics which can be referenced geographically in their extent, can be overlayd at Google Earth.
