[Chimera-users] Save a transformed density map

You can save the Chimera session to preserve the orientation of one
map fit into another.
If you want to write a new map so that when it is loaded in Chimera
and other software it will be at the correct place in the map it was fit
into that is harder. The problem is that none of the map file formats
provide for a positioning transformation in the header. So it would be
necessary to resample the map that you fit on the grid of the map you
fit into. Resampling interpolates data values and can degrade map
quality. Do you want to do that?
