#### Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:

Can you list the top facts and stats about Contour line?

A contour line (also isoline, isopleth, or isarithm) of a function of two variables is a curve along which the function has a constant value, so that the curve joins points of equal value.[1][2] It is a plane section of the three-dimensional graph of the function ${\displaystyle f(x,y)}$ parallel to the ${\displaystyle (x,y)}$-plane. More generally, a contour line for a function of two variables is a curve connecting points where the function has the same particular value.[2]
