Modify Projection for east west area

Question asked by fallingdog on Feb 5, 2018

I have an area I would like to map. The extent of the area is approximately: -147 to -141 and 69.5 N to 70.5 N (North East Alaska). It falls right between two state plane zones and also between two UTM zones. For now, I just took the Alaska Albers projection and changed the central meridian to -144 and set the standard parallels to 69.6 and 69.8. 

 

So, I am wondering if this is the best choice. Should try and tweak a UTM zone? Or maybe a Lambert projection?

 

I am just trying to pick something that will minimize distortion and be focused on the area of interest.

 

Thanks,
