The USGS Contour Web Service creates a vector shapefile of contours for the desired area, which the user inputs in terms of latitude and longitude. If desired, the user may also choose the contour interval and units and a name for the resulting shapefile. The generated files are packaged in one zipfile and placed on the USGS webserver where they are publicly available. This service returns a URL that can be used to obtain the finished file.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
