Inter-relate two coordinate systems
"
input"
points) to give a new set of coordinates (representing "
output"
points).
It is used to describe the relationship which exists between two different
coordinate systems and to implement operations which make use of this (such as
transforming coordinates and resampling grids of data). However, the Mapping class
does not have a constructor function of its own, as it is simply a container
class for a family of specialised Mappings which implement particular types of
coordinate transformation. Invert: Mapping inversion flag
IsLinear: Is the Mapping linear?
IsSimple: Has the Mapping been simplified?
Nin: Number of input coordinates for a Mapping
Nout: Number of output coordinates for a Mapping
Report: Report transformed coordinates?
