I am trying to create contour lines of a mountainous alpine region (the rhone glacier) for the purposes of a simple site plan. After much resfing I tried to use maperitive but I cannot seem to find NASA SRTM data.

Sorry for the simple question, I have been trying obtain contour lines for the past few days but I have not been able to.

Probably the simplest place to retrieve the data is via Jonathan de Ferranti's site viewfinderpanormas.org. These have voids filled (from a range of sources, which may have licence implications) and so are likely to be rather more useful than raw SRTM data.

An alternative is ASTER: https://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/gdem-wist.asp
