Dear montse,

I assume you are looking for a suitable equidistant map projection for your area of interest. At the EEA, we are always using the Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection, which gives a true representation of the areas, but does not necessarily preserve the distances. I suggest that you search on Internet for "equidistant map projections", or perhaps start at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map_projection#Equidistant
