Plot trajectories on a contour map

I am wanting to do a few different things.
Is there a way that I can plot a trajectory over the contour map of Antarctica and have it centered on a specific location, set by Lat, Long?
I can call up a lima map fairly and plot my trajectories fairly easily. I can't seem to be able to do this on a contour map, which would make my tracks a little more interesting. I can't even seem to focus it on a specific location.
For a more advanced trick, is there a way to plot my tracks in 3D over something like a surface bedrock map? I have lat, long, and altitude all along the tracks.
Is there a way to do these things using the Antarctic Mapping tools?

Examples? To which part are you referring? Here is the code for the contour map.
[lat,lon,sfz] = bedmap2_data('sfz','res','5 km');
contourfps(lat,lon,sfz,0:200:5000,'km')
cb = colorbar;
ylabel(cb,'surface elevation (m)')
clabel(C,h,'LabelSpacing',300,'fontsize',8)
My marker should be placed at -71.2, 111.3, elevation 2690m. My tracks are 121-240 lines long. Will this matter?
