Hi Jie,

Indeed in the restart file all required information to build the free 
energy hyper surface are stored, i.e, positions, widths and heights of the 
hills. To sum up the Gaussians you can use the tool that you prefer.
As previously suggested the tool provided with plumed would be a solution.
Another possibility would be the sub-program graph that is compiled 
together with cp2k.

Kind regards
