Is there any program or addon that allows me to see height mapping or contours on Google Earth? Thanks!
Yeah, but I suggest satellite view, then you can use the zoom and change the altitude to get perspective.

There's a program called Microdem that will help develop the map from Google Earth and other sources. This thread by MarkSheppard may help you.
