      Description

      Quoting from §1.3.1.6 from Geomatics Guidance Note number 7, part 2 – April 2015:

      The Lambert Conformal Conic with one standard parallel formulas, as published by the Army Map Service, are still in use in several countries. The AMS uses series expansion formulas for ease of computation, as was normal before the electronic computer made such approximate methods unnecessary.

      This is a projection used mostly for legacy data.
