[R] Contour plot overlayed with line plot

Seemed to answer my own question: I tacked a
plot.axes={axis(1);axis(2);points(xdata,ydata,type="l")} in the
filled.contour call and it appears to be working right! Thanks!

I was using filled.contour, when I went back and just used contour it worked
fine -- so there is NOT an easy way to get filled contour to work with an
overlay?

To fake your input data from the built-in volcano data set:
set.seed(1)
NAs <- sample(1:length(volcano), 5000)
volcanoNAs <- volcano
is.na(volcanoNAs) <- NAs
crds <- 10*(which(!is.na(volcanoNAs), arr.ind=TRUE))
crdsz <- cbind(crds, c(volcanoNAs[!is.na(c(volcanoNAs))]))
giving a three-column matrix of two coordinates and elevation values.
library(akima)
new_volcano <- interp(x=crdsz[,1], y=crdsz[,2], z=crdsz[,3])
str(new_volcano)
to see what it looks like, by default a 40 by 40 grid, and
contour(new_volcano, asp=1)
points(x=crdsz[,1], y=crdsz[,2], pch=4, col="grey")
plots the points on the same coordinate system.
What are the specific command you are using, say in relation to this toy
data set?
Bets are off if you use filled.contour(); that lets you insert extra
graphics, but the have to be done in the function arguments, not
afterwards.
