I'm trying to make a map of Russia in the Albers projection. My projection string is:
+proj=aea +lat_1=45 +lat_2=70 +lat_0=40 +lon_0=100 +x_0=20 +y_0=20 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=m +no_defs
Which produces a very nice-looking map, except that the projection is in meters, and I need it in lat/lng. However, whenever I try to remove
+units=m from the projection string, QGIS adds it right back in.
How do I get this projection in a coordinate format? Is there a similar but different projection I could use that QGIS will allow to be in lat/lng (preferably that's also supported by d3 or d3.geo.projections, which is how I expect to show these coordinates)?
