I am looking for a suitable projected coordinate reference system (CRS) for the European Alps.


  • Extent: Covering the whole European Alps: Horizontal: 4.5°...17° Vertical: 43°...48.5°.
  • Isogonal projection. As far as mathematically possible the projection should be as well equidistant.
  • One common zone.
  • Unit: Meters (m)
  • EPSG code available
  • 2
    What have you tried, and why did you reject them? As written, this may be too opinion-based to avoid closure, so please Edit the question.

Go to EPSG registry (https://epsg.org/)

Do a map search by drawing a polygon around the area of interest, and you will have a selection of CRS to choose from that match your criteria
