Can anyone recommend a projected coordinate system for Brazil?
I am using WGS 1984 maps and want to run the Tabulate Intersection function in each of Brazil's 27 states (an area calculation between one feature class and one with 1km[SUP]2[/SUP] grid squares). Conserving the area is going to play an important factor so I was not if I could use something such as a Continental State system like the South America Albers Equal Area Conic. The other option I have considered was using UTM zones but Brazil lies within seven.
I am pretty new to GIS so wanted to ask for some advice. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
