Isocaps Add Context to Visualizations

Isocaps are planes that are fitted to the limits of an isosurface to provide a visual context for the isosurface. Isocaps show a cross-sectional view of the interior of the isosurface for which it provides an end cap.

The following two pictures illustrate the use of isocaps. The first is an isosurface without isocaps.

The second picture shows the effect of adding isocaps to the same isosurface.
