There are several factors to consider in order to determine the coordinate system for a project.
The following scenarios model common situations requiring a combination of data from different sources. They may help to select the coordinate system that is best for a project.
In these scenarios, it is possible to substitute a projection for any of the example projections, such as UTM, State Plane, and Albers, but do not substitute a projection for the geographic coordinate system. The geographic coordinate system (DD) is not a projection. Most common scenarios involve the combination of both DD data and projected data, such as UTM, State Plane and Albers.
Note: Since raster data is not affected by the view's projection, it overlays the vector data.Option B.
Note: Determine which projection provides better results for your application.Option A.
