Do you "reposition the central meridian"? If so, how?

Hi all -

 

I'm teaching an intro-level "GeoTechniques" class this semester. It's my first term teaching. I'm using the reading Making a Meaningful Map among others. The authors refer to a process where you are "repositioning the central meridian... to the center of the mapped area" (p.2). It does make sense to me that this could be done, but having always mapped with State Plane I've never had the need to do it.

 

Do you do this? If so, how?! This embarks on creating a custom projection, no?

 

Thanks in advance for any thoughts/comments on this.

 

Cheers,

Joanna
