I need help with setting the projection -a_srs for gdal_translate. I'm
trying to goereference a 100k topo map and the collar only says it is a
Lambert projection and Clarke ellipsoid. It is ulx=35.433333, uly=34.75,
lrx=36.0, lry=34.25. The map is circa 1970 of Lebanon and the collar is
in French if that helps.

candidate. Their were some similar to my area are EPSG:3200 and
EPSG:24600 if the lon_0 were tweaked to be closer.
Any ideas on what to do here?
Is it as simple as -a_srs 'proj=lcc ellps=clrk80'
Unfortunately, if it unlikely that I can get more information about the
