Iso Contouring

A fundamental visualization technique is iso contouring. In principle iso contouring is a technique that extracts a subset of points of the data set that match a particular singular data property or a combination thereof.

In 2D the set of of points matching a certain singular criterion is a so called iso line. Multiple iso lines contributed to an iso contour.

For a weather forecast for examples, the lines of equal pressure, the so called isobars, are visualized:
