Click Add to create a new Mapping System. This will pop a windows with all the projection template available.

From this list, simply select the projection template required and fill it with your local parameters. As an example, here is the template to create a “Lambert Conformal Conic with 1 standard Parallel” Mapping System.

From there:

1. Enter a Short name;

2. Enter a Long name (this is the name that will be displayed in all the reports);

3. Enter all the technical parameters (you should verify with your local authority to make sure that you are using proper values)

4. Select a Datum (if not available, create it using the Datum button found in the Mapping System Editor window)

5. Click OK and your new custom Mapping System will now be displayed in Mapping System Editor.


Each template offers typical “Projection Parameters”; users with a minimum experience should be able to set them properly.
