  • Most important properties of a map projection, i.e. reference coordinate system for spatial data are size and distribution of angle, distance and area distortions. If performed in an inappropriate way, without consideration of map projection distortions, calculations in plane reference coordinate system can lead to unreliable results and analysis. GIS software usually have support for these problems, for example, it is possible to get distances, azimuths or areas on sphere or ellipsoid. It can… CONTINUE READING
