It depends on what you have as initial data : if you have some
"isolines" for the density, you can digitize them, giving each
line a density as attribute, then and
Your line contour map should be seen exactly as a altitude contour
map.  So it is important that each line is labelled with the
number it represents.

If you have mesured the density at some places, you will find
easier to enter your mesures in a site file (x, y, value), then
run then rast, and finaly You will
interpolate between points instead of lines.
