Please see the posting on Isotropic and Anisotropic. So we know how the sound "iso" (with palatal "s") comes and the sound "metric" comes from Sanskrit "matR", "matara" and "matric" - meaning measurable.
So it means something where "Desired" + "Measurable" attribute. And it also means "God" + "Measurable" attribute. We all know "God" is "Omnipresent", "present in all directions", or "all over 3-D Space". So I would guess some meaning where it means "All directional desired and measurable" attribute.
Now go and see how the word isometric has started with this meaning and changed over time - but still keep the essence of the above attribute.
(1) Iso-metric in Engineering Drawing - projection of 3D to 2D space for getting a view of all dimensions and directions.
(2) Iso-metric in Physical Exercise - use of all muscles in "opposition pairs", which is one of the principles used in Yoga Stretches.
(3) Iso-metric in Music - where there is a "sameness of (measured) rhythm in all parts"
(4) Iso-metric in Crystals - Where unit cell is in the shape of a cube - which is 3D and all equal.
(5) Iso-metric Joystick - that would span equally in all 3-D Directions.
(6) Iso-metry in Mathematical Functions - that would preserve distances in all dimensions.
(7) Iso-metric in Thermodynamics - that would preserve a constant volume.
