• A number of Conformal Map Projections are used in the United States.

• Universal Transverse Mercator.

• Transverse Mercator.

• Oblique Transverse Mercator.

• Lambert Conformal Conical.

• The Transverse Mercator is used for states (or zones in states) that are long in a North-South direction.

• The Lambert is used for states (or zones in states) that are long in an East-West direction.

• The Oblique Mercator is used in one zone in Alaska where neither the TM or Lambert were appropriate.

• The secant cone intersects the surface of the ellipsoid at two places.

• The lines joining these points of intersection are known as standard parallels. By specifying these parallels it defines the cone.

• Scale is always the same along an East-West line.

• By defining the central meridian, the cone becomes orientated with respect to the ellipsoid
