Map Projections

You can improve the fit between the map layers in your project materials by learning how to handle the differing geometry of various map projections and coordinate systems. You can select a suitable projection, and convert all materials to that common projection. With a basic understanding of map projections, you can maximize the accuracy of the distance and area measurements you derive from your project materials.
