Kin2Dcont and Kin3Dcont read value/coordinate lists to produce contour maps in kinemage format. Both scattered data and uniformly sampled data can be contoured. Kin2Dcont can also be used to produce contours in PostScript format.
Like the program Cluster, Kin2Dcont and Kin3Dcont are general programs applicable to many cases.
For example, we use Kin3Dcont to read Xplor-format electron density maps and output kinemage-format vectors for map display. See the README.kincontours instructions for an example command for this. Another use of kincontours is to contour the average number of contact dots for a molecule. Here is a brief description of how to generate contours for contact dots using the script scoreDotsAtAtom, Alternatively, one can contour based on the average atomic volume via this method using the awk script mapvol. Both scripts are available on the scripts download page.
