rubbersheeting:  Any process in which a raster is stretched differentially to match a new set of geometric constraints.  This shape change could be defined by any one of many transformations such as changing a map projection, trilateration to change the absolute position of cells within a raster, fitting a polynomial to a surface, least squares movement of control cells, and so on.
