High resolution regional and global raster databases are currently being generated for a variety of environmental and scientific modeling applications. The projection of those data from geographic coordinates to a plane coordinate system is subject to significant variation and error based on the selected projection, the raster pixel size, and the specific latitude of the location being projected. While equal-area projections are designed to specifically preserve area, research shows that area… CONTINUE READING
