Depth contours are a well-known technique for visualizing the distribution of multidimensional point data sets. We present an image-space algorithm for drawing the depth contours of a set ofplanar points. The algorithm is an improvement on existing algorithms based on the duality principle, implemented using 3D graphics rendering techniques.
