Where is the topographic data sourced from?

The Houston topographic data is sourced from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), specifically their 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). You can read more about the 3DEP here. In general, built-in Houston elevation data is sourced from a library of airborne LiDAR surveys that are managed by the USGS, and connected to Equator for easy access.

Which data formats can I export from Equator?

Contours can be extracted from the Houston topographic map at any resolution to a shapefile (.shp) or drawing (.dxf).

Digital elevation models (DEMs), digital surface models (DSMs) and point clouds (LAZ) can also be exported.

Can I bring contours into Civil 3D?

Contours can be opened in AutoDesk Civil3D (or similar) simply by opening an dxf file or shapefile exported from Equator. This tutorial explains how to create a 3D surface in Civil 3D directly from a shapefile.
