# imtranslate

Translate image

## Syntax

## Description

translates image `B`

= imtranslate(`A`

,`translation`

)`A`

by the 2-D or 3-D translation vector specified in
`translation`

.

If `A`

has more than two dimensions and
`translation`

is a 2-element vector, then
`imtranslate`

applies the 2-D translation to each plane of
`A`

.

`[`

translates the spatially referenced image `B`

,`RB`

] =
imtranslate(`A`

,`RA`

,`translation`

)`A`

with its associated spatial
referencing object `RA`

. The translation vector,
`translation`

, is in the world coordinate system. The function returns
the translated spatially referenced image `B`

, with its associated
spatial referencing object, `RB`

.

`___ = imtranslate(___,`

translates
the input image using name-value pairs to control various aspects
of the translation.`Name,Value`

)

## Examples

## Input Arguments

## Output Arguments

## Tips

`imtranslate`

is optimized for integrally valued`translation`

vectors.When

`'OutputView'`

is`'full'`

and`translation`

is a fractional number of pixels, then`imtranslate`

expands the world limits of the output spatial referencing object to the nearest full pixel increment.`imtranslate`

does this so that it contains both the original and translated images at the same resolution as the input image. The additional image extent in each is added on one side of the image, in the direction that the translation vector points. For example, when`translation`

is fractional and positive in both*X*and*Y*, then`imtranslate`

expands the maximum of`XWorldLimits`

and`YWorldLimits`

to enclose the`'full'`

bounding rectangle at the resolution of the input image.
