I'm attempting to georeference and warp some old toposheets that are various old projections including the following:

Miller Oblated Stereographic Projection
Bipolar Oblique Conic Conformal

What's the best approach to acquiring the definition for this projection? Or do I just have to use ArcGIS which seems to have these defined, note I have ArcGis available, but not for a while.

  • ArcInfo workstation has Bipolar oblique, ArcGIS (desktop/server) doesn't. No ArcGIS software supports Miller oblated stereographic. – mkennedy Sep 23 '15 at 20:30
  • Thanks, I think I have ArcInfo available as I work for a University that has a full ESRI licence I believe. I guess if I add more GCP for the stereographic and use polynomial order 3 then i should improve the coverage, but it's going to end up quite distorted. – MichaelStoner Sep 24 '15 at 8:44
