[vtkusers] Contours elevation

You can first create a height field from your data using the
vtkWarpScalar filter. Then, you can create contours on the warped data
coming from this filter, and they will be at their respective heights.
Your pipeline will look something like (in Python):

warper = vtkWarpScalar()

contourer = vtkContourFilter()
contourer.GenerateValues(3, 0, 10) # number of contours, min value, max value

Hope that helps,
