ahh looked it up it was 1 million units from the equator to the north pole intersecting paris and they decided on 1 metre or 10,000 km's ,quarter of the world, so 40,000 km's. It was 240 years ago and they were out by 2 km's as it's 10,002 km's....or 40,008 kms pole to pole or 40,080 around the equator.

Interesting USA was one of the first countries to use the metric system to survey their coast but ended up about the only country in the world to keep using imperial....
