So how do I go about creating a terrain map in Unity with contours?


I use the terrain.party website to create height maps of real world locations. Once the height maps are downloaded, you'll need to use Photoshop or Gimp or similar to convert them to .raw format, so that Unity can read them.

Once you have the height map in .raw format, you can create a terrain object in Unity and apply the height map to displace the geometry. I'll leave it to you to play with the settings etc. to get the effect you are looking for, but this should get you started...
