    Prime Meridian
    From: Jackson McDonald
    Date: 2014 Mar 18, 15:09 -0400

    Please find attached some photos of the French nautical chart that led me to 
    do a little research into the designation of the Greenwich meridian as the 
    Prime Meridian in 1884.  
    
    This chart, dated 1771, uses the "Meridien de Paris" as the initial line for 
    numbering "longitude orientale" and "longitude occidentale."
