The international authority for all things geodetic/cartographic in Argentina is Mr. Rubén Rodríguez [rubenro at fibertel.com.ar].  If there is a national standard, Rubén knows it.

Subject: [Proj] metric projection to map all Argentina


I'm working with different raster and vector data for all Argentina and I can not find the official metric projection to represent the whole country at once... The official projection according to the National Geography Institute is Gauss-Kruger, but I think that is only useful for smaller areas... Does anyone know what is normally used or have any suggestion on what to use?

Thanks a lot in advance!
