Northeast New Mexico Water Region Maps



Here, you'll be able to download and view maps and GIS data of the planning region. If you would like to see an already produced map, use the Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) or Adobe Illustrator (.ai) file. The PDF file is probably the easiest if you'd like to print out a copy. You can also view, without downloading, the pdf file by clicking the link and choosing "open" instead of "save as." If you'd like to download the GIS data to produce your own map, you can download the the ArcGIS (.mxd) file. After that, you'll need to click the folder icon by the word "data" for that particular map to download all the associated data files. Each data file is in .zip format. I highly recommend after unzipping the folders using ArcCatalog to move them. If you do use Windows Explorer, however, be sure to copy over all the files you unzipped (inlcluding the "info" folder). If you do not, ArcGIS may not recognize the file.

Please not this page is fairly long with quite a bit of white space. You can either use the scroll bar on the right or use one of these links to scroll throughout the page. Also note that because of the elongated shape of this planning region, each map is broken down into a northern and southern portion.
