Projection



LAMBERT

Description
Lambert Conformal Conic projection.
Syntax
LAMBERT [1,2,3,]4,5,6,7,8,9[,10]
The LAMBERT command has these parts:
Parameter Description
1 [Optional] Control Parameter.
Compute projection constants from:
 
When cone is over South Pole, use
 -2 = Parameters 2 & 3
 -1 = Parameters 4 through 9
 
When cone is over North Pole, use
 0 or 1 = Parameters 4 through 9
 2 = Parameters 2 & 3
2 [Optional] Cone Constant
3 [Optional] Integration Constant
4 Latitude of lower standard parallel
(Degrees portion)
5 Latitude of lower standard parallel
(Minutes portion)
6 Latitude of lower standard parallel
(Seconds portion)
7 Latitude of upper standard parallel
(Degrees portion)
8 Latitude of upper standard parallel
(Minutes portion)
9 Latitude of upper standard parallel
(Seconds portion)
10 [Optional] Control parameter.
When cone is over South Pole:
 0 = North at top of map
 1 = South at top of map
Remarks
In all versions of MicroCAM and CAM.
Example
LAMBERT 30,0,0,45,0,0
Selects a Lambert Conformal Conic projection with standard parallels of 30°N and 45°N.
