Resource Information Management Team (RIM)
We work with partner associations and other organizations to capture, store, retrieve, analyze, and share geographic information about the national historic trails and the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program in a digital format. We create maps, lists, tables, graphics, reports, and other products to assist in the protection, development, and promotion of national historic trails. Visit our GIS Data webpage for national historic trail alignment data.
