All I want to do is project the countries.shp file (or any shapefile) using an Albers projection to produce a map similar to the one here: http://www.codeplex.com/SharpMap/Wiki/View.aspx?title=Which%20projections%20are%20supported&referringTitle=FAQ

I'm able to load the file, and create an image, and zoom in/out and pan. But how do I tell SharpMap that I don't want a Mercator/rectangular projection, but instead an Albers projection? I read the wiki and the docs and could not find any complete code showing how to do this. Thanks for your help
