  I have done something similar to go from linear to log axis for an
image. There may be a better way but this will go through the image row by
row and interpolate the data onto a nonlinear grid. Then just use tv,
newimage to display the image with the new (nonlinear) axis.

      for i=0, n_lines-1 do $
              newimage[*, i]=interpol(image[*, i], linearaxis,

n_lines is the number of rows in the image, linearaxis is a vector with
the original linear axis, and nonlinearaxis is vector containing the
nonlinear axis values.
