Orthogonal co-ordinates looks like it applies better

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  michnick: Co-ordinates can be "orthogonal" but never "orthonormal".

orthonormal frame


Explanation:
On l'utilise plus frequemment dans les textes geometriques, tandis que "orthonormal basis" est utilise preferablement dans les textes algebriques.

orthonormal coordinates/coordinate system


Explanation:
See the definitions in the links below.

michnick may be right that coordinates cannot be orthonormal, but for "basis" there is the french word "base" and for "frame" there is "réferentiel".

I finally think that "Orthogonal co-ordinates" is fine

Orthonormal reference point


Explanation:
In my opinion that refers to a reference point to place any orthonormal set of coordinates, may be origin or somewhere else in space,may be reference point describes this fact.
Maybe a shift of original otrhonormal set.
However, Context is not sufficient to decide?
