*.png: sample static images
tilemill: sources for TileMill. (Note, data files are just symlinks)
webserver: tilestache setup, CGI script, Apache config, mbtiles rendered tiles
webapp: HTML and Javascript

Notes on contours:

There's incomplete code here for rendering contours, showing all terrain over 8000'.
The source data comes from SRTM3, converted to shapefiles via GDAL and PostGIS.
