The Projection Wizard can help you decide which projection you should use for your mapping project.

The map projection guide allows you to select the extent of the map view you are working with by outlining the area on a Leaflet map. Once you've highlighted your area, you can choose a distortion property (Equal area, Conformal, Equidistant, Compromise).

The Wizard then gives you the best projections for your area.
