Definition: Planimetric map
UN - Geographic Information Systems
A map that, in contrast to a topographic map, only shows the locations of features but not their elevation. A planimetric map may show the same features as a topographic map, with the exception of terrain or elevation contours, but will usually only show selected features chosen for a specific purpose.
