Automatic contouring, be it of well-defined functions of two variables or of observational data obtained by experiment, presents certain problems. Various approaches to the solution of some of these problems are discussed and the techniques used in a particular application, namely the generation of contour maps of irregularly spaced gravity data, are presented. A set of conditions to be satisfied by a contouring technique are given.
