a) in version 6.0 ContourPlot[] will work with data in any position
    as to see from
    ListContourPlot[Table[Random[], {5}, {3}]]
b) and for higer finite elements you have to write the correct
    interpolation routine. But it may be sufficient, to
    compute the function on a triangular mesh and feed it into
