When starting a GIS mapping project, a crucial step is deciding which map projection to use. If the projection does not support the map's purpose, the map will be ineffective—or worse, misleading. This course explores major categories of map projections and their properties. You will learn which projections are commonly used for different types of GIS maps and how to choose an appropriate projection for a given mapping project.
