Biology. equal growth rates in two parts of a developing organism.

Geography. equality with respect to height above sea level.

Mathematics. a function from one metric space onto a second metric space having the property that the distance between two points in the first space is equal to the distance between the image points in the second space.

A function between two metric spaces (such as two coordinate systems) which preserves distances. A rotation or translation in a plane is an isometry, since the distances between two points on the plane remain the same after the rotation or translation.
