A Geographic Base File is a map in machine-readable form, and Dual Independent Map Encoding is the method used for this collection to encode map features in data files. These files have been created for most metropolitan areas.

Looking for abbreviations of GBF/DIME. It is Geographic Base File/Dual-Independent-Map-Encoding. Geographic Base File/Dual-Independent-Map-Encoding listed as GBF/DIME. InU.S.

Census Bureau researchers searched for a solution to convert analog maps into digital data. Bureau mathematician James Corbett developed a method to use Geographic Base Files (GBF, a map in machine-reading form) to encode map features into data files.

The system, known as Dual Independent Map Encoding (DIME) allowed intersections. Geographic knowledge is seen as important for the teaching of other subjects, especially history, sociology, anthropology, economics, business, and political science.
