Comparison of Contour Plots between Various Programs

I've constructed a number of smoothed, interpolated contour plots in
SAS.  The contours do not pass through the actual fairly 'noisy' data
points, but are purposely adjusted so as to produce clean readily
understandable contours.

I'd like to compare the SAS contour plots with what Mathematica

ListContourPlot seems the appropriate procedure.  Would someone here
please guide in selecting the appropriate commands to highly smooth
and interpolate?

I'm hoping the high points, low points in the contour plots in SAS and
Mathematica outputs match up.  Otherwise I'll be quite concerned.
