The lines will have to come from Data that makes lines, such
as a Set with manifold dimension = 1 or a FlatField with a
domain Set with manifold dimension = 1 (the lines don't look
like iso-lines). Given such Data, you can make thick lines
with ConstantMaps to LineWidth. You can put each set of lines
on a different ZAxis level with ConstantMaps to ZAxis. Or if
you want line z level to vary with terrain, you can resample
your terrain FlatField to Sets over the (x, y) domain and with
manifold dimension = 1. These resample() calls will produce
FlatFields, and you can adjust their z level (to create distinct
layers) by adding offsets to their getFloats() values, then
passing back to their setSamples() methods.

Good luck,
