modified Lambert conformal map projection

A modification of the Lambert conformal projection for use in polar regions. One of the standard parallels is at latitude 89°59’58” and the other latitude is at 71° or 74°. The parallels are expanded slightly to form complete concentric circles. Also called Ney’s map projection.
