This series of pages is in no way meant to assign blame to Trimble, NGS or any agency.  Rather it has sparked communication and revealed the mixed blessings brought by the latest high accuracy receivers, processing and imagery. 

Users trust Trimble.  This trust is not misplaced as it is a very powerful product on which many of us have relied upon for years.  As an international company, Trimble literally has uses across the entire globe.  However, a significant portion of the users are based in NAD83.   Given NAD83(2011) has been adopted as the standard by NGS, USCG real-time beacons, OPUS solutions and the US federal government (i.e. NPS, BLM, USFS and BIA).

We trust Trimble will do the Right Thing for North American users and

move from ITRF00 epoch 1997 to the latest NAD83(2011)… please
