  isometry 
 
    A  {mapping}  of  a  {metric  space}  onto  another  or 
  onto  itself  so  that  the  distance  between  any  two  points  in  the 
  original  space  is  the  same  as  the  distance  between  their 
  images  in  the  second  space.  For  example,  any  combination  of 
  rotation  and  translation  is  an  isometry  of  the  plane.
