I need to generate a mapping toolbox projection structure for the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research (SCAR) standard projection. It is a polar stereographic projection with a standard parallel at 71S. None of the azimuthal projections accept standard parallels, so how do I calculate the scale factor I need to make -71 the latitude of true scale?

See also: Antarctic Mapping Tools, which relies heavily on an adapted version Andrew's functions.
