```I believe you are looking for the plate caree projection
https://epsg.io/32662

from: +proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs
to:     +proj=eqc +lat_ts=0 +lat_0=0 +lon_0=0 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs

"eqc" above is "Equidistant Cylindrical (Plate Caree)" - which is an alias of OGC WKT Name: "Equirectangular"

You will need to truncate this to integer
