Remarks: The appropriate usage of CRSs using the Voirol 1875 and 1879 datums is lost in antiquity. They differ by about 9 metres. Oil industry references to one could in reality be to either. All replaced by Nord Sahara 1959 (CRS code 4307).

Area of use: Algeria - onshore north of 32°N.

Coordinate system: Ellipsoidal 2D CS. Axes: latitude, longitude. Orientations: north, east. UoM: degree
