Dear all,

I have done a bit of research about this but couldn't get to any solution, so hopefully I might be able to get some help here. I am customizing the Albers equal conic area projection to my study region. I know how to create a new projected coordinate system but I don't know the meaning and how to define the standard parallels 1 and 2. If my study area is in between the -30° and - 35° parallels, what should be the standard parallels of my customized projection?

Thank you in advance for your help. Best regards,
