Connecting cosmological simulations to real-world observational programs is often complicated by a mismatch in geometry: while surveys often cover highly irregular cosmological volumes, simulations are customarily performed in a periodic cube. We describe a technique to remap this cube into elongated box-like shapes that are more useful for many applications. The remappings are one-to-one, volume-preserving, keep local structures intact, and involve minimal computational overhead.
