TRIM Positional Data

Terrain Resource Information Management (TRIM) Positional map data contains positionally correct, complete and edited vector base map data. TRIM Positional data consists of all digital planimetric data compiled directly by stereo compilation, with no positional adjustments of data performed on the file.
