Where does Equator get the topographic data from?

Equator’s data is sourced from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and their 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). You can read more about the 3DEP here.

Denver elevation data is sourced from a library of airborne LiDAR surveys and is connected to Equator for ease of access.

Extracting contours in Equator.

Contours can be extracted from the Denver topographic map at the resolution of your choosing.

Contours can be exported to a variety of formats including shapefile (.shp) and drawing (.dxf).

Digital elevation models (DEMs) are also available.

How do I bring contours into Civil 3D?

Contours can be opened in AutoDesk Civil3D (or similar) simply by opening an dxf file or shapefile exported from Equator. This tutorial explains how to create a 3D surface in Civil 3D directly from a shapefile.
