raster.shift (Shift Raster)

Performs a simple x, y shift on a raster dataset


This tool will shifts a raster by the specified x and y distances. This tool is designed as a quick, approximate method of resolving only the most simple raster misalignment problems. Note that for most raster misalignment problems the best solution may be a transformation or more thorough re-registration. The shift distances must be specified in coordinate system units (e.g. meters for UTM, decimal degrees for geographic coordinate systems, etc).
