[Sorry if this message is a dupe. First, I tried to send through the
gmane interface but the previous mail seemed to have disappeared in limbo]
I would like to know if there are canonical projections to display maps
of North America (USA + Canada). I am not looking for specific
properties, just to find a representation US people are accustomed to
(think US elections results maps for instance).
I thought there would be some kind of Lambert Conic projection that USGS
or other official agencies would prefer among others but I cannot find
any sanctified datum/transformation. Web searches or quick looks to
MapInfo returns several proposals for secant parallels for Lambert SP2
projections applied to NAD27 datums but no canonic one.
What should I use ? Is there one with a registed ESPG or GeoTiff
Thank you for any hint.
