How useful, I didn't realise OpenOffice supported DXF, even if it isn't 
so great with the 20MB file of the Snowdon mountain range that I use as 
my test case!

I've spent most of today working with different tools to convert the raw 
contour data into other, more useful forms such as a DEM dataset (which 
is essentially just an image coloured according to height.

I've generally found a successful method to do this, and hope to publish 
my results later this week.
