I am new to GIS and would appreciate any help. I have to select a equal area projection for the country of Columbia and modify the standard parallels and central meridian, I have chosen the S. America Lambert Conformal conic because it is best for mid latitudes. I know how to make the adjustments for the standard parallels and meridian but dont know how to go about choosing the modifications for the parallels and meridian. 


Any help is appreciated.
