[R] Contour plot overlayed with line plot

Duncan (and others):
I figured it out (thank you!), I ended up doing a
contour(interp(x,y,z)), and I did figure out lines(), but I can't get the
output of lines to "sync" with the proper coordinates of the contour()
output (its overlaying the line over the contour plot, but not in the proper
location). Any ideas?

I think you don't understand the requirements of contour(). It wants
the z values to be in an M x N matrix, and x to be a vector of length N,
y a vector of length M. (Or did I get those transposed? It's late...)
The x values are the x coordinates of each column of z, the y values are
the y coordinates of them.
If you have triplets (x,y,z) of data that you want to plot as a surface,
you need to convert them to the form above, e.g. using the interp()
function from the akima package.
If I completely misunderstood your question: you can use the sort()
function to order x and y.
