I wonder what's "MIPS", because I too want to convert elevations files
to contour and needed to know how to do that. Isn't there a module that

I think that you may have some trouble getting a result that makes nay
if your elevation data is at 250m spacing. That grid was probably built
quite sparse data which may have had a vertical accuracy of 50m or more.
I would be trying to get the original spot height data that was used to
the 250m raster, and exporting that to another application such as MIPS,
then building a TIN and extracting a fine reolution grid from that. This
at least you will be able to interpolate better between known points in
original data, and the finer the grid the smaller the error in flooded
The large 250 grid data can lead to large errors in coverage for each m
in water level.
Hope this helps.
