I have a map in the form of .bil & .hdr using WGS84. I'd like to convert this into another map using a 2D projection while keeping the lat/long information. What I'd really like with this new map is to have a consistent distance/pixel. With the WGS84, the distance/pixel changed from top/bottom and left/right. The map size is about 100 miles. Here are my question.
- Is this possible to do this to a level of accuracy of +/- 100 ft.
- What would be a good 2D projection? I have seen people recommending not using mercator but I dont know what my other options are.
What is the command to transform this using gdal. I think this is it but the # of options were a bit overwhelming and I wasnt sure if I was doing this right.
gdalwarp -t_srs '+proj=merc +datum=WGS84' input_wgs84.bil out_merc.bil
