I have two vector layers of state and county boundaries that I would like to find the areas for each individual state/county. However, the CRS is set to
EPSG:4269. Due to this, when I look at the
ALAND is waaay too big to make sense and there are no units. I think that these are in arcsecs, and someone recommended at What are units for calculated area in QGIS? that I change the CRS to UTM or Lambert.
Are there any recommendations for a CRS that would fit both the U.S. and counties shapefiles (they are overlaid so I don't want them to look offset)?
