How to select projections??

  • When you choose a projection, the first thing to consider is the purpose of your map. For general reference and atlas maps, you usually want to balance shape and area distortion. If your map has a specific purpose, you may need to preserve a certain spatial property—most commonly shape or area—to achieve that purpose. Since we are more conscious about shape as well as true direction, Universal Polar Stereographic projection is conformal type of projection.
