A shape file I am working on uses the Lambert_Conformal_Conic projection. I would like to get a reference to this system via the IGeographicCoordinate interface.

To get at the standard lat long projection, I do this

IGeographicCoordinate gcs = srFactory.CreateGeographicCoordinateSystem((int)esriSRGeoCSType.esriSRGeoCS_WGS1984);

So I looked for lambert in the enum type of esriSRGeoCSType but couldn't find anything close. Does anyone know what I'm missing?

I'm using ArcEngine 10 in VS2010 with C#

Try using esriSpatialReferenceProjection.ImportFromESRISpatialReference and add the projection .
