Writing a contour plotter

The F# Journal just published an article about computer graphics:
"Visualizations come in many different forms. One of the most common ways to visualize a function of two variables is a contour plot. The function is sampled to identify perimeters where it crosses thresholds and these are rendered as vector paths. This article describes the design and implementation of a simple program that generates contour plots using the meandering triangles algorithm and, when parallelized, runs over 11x faster than Mathematica..."
