Charles Marie de La Condamine (January 28, 1701 – February 4, 1774) was a French explorer, geographer, and mathematician.

La Condamine was born in Paris. He was trained for the military profession, but turned his attention to science and geographical exploration. Before his journey to South America, he took part in a scientific expedition in the Levant in 1731.
