Though not used commonly today, Cassini was once the standard for a number of European nations, including England and France. Developed in 1745 by C. F. Cassini de Thury for the first major survey of France. This projection is neither equal-area nor conformal. Most meridians and parallels are complex curves, except for the central meridian, the Equator and each meridian 90 degrees from the central meridian.
