The Euclidean mapping or isometry is a special case of affine mapping that, besides collinearity and ratios of distances, keeps also distances and angles. Because of this, a Euclidean mapping is also called a rigid motion.
Euclidean mappings are of three types:
A special case of Euclidean mapping is a symmetry operation.
