Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) has coordinated with local, tribal, State and Federal partners to collectively fund acquisition of region-wide ortho-photography data every two years since 1999, and digital elevation data based on aerial Light Detection & Ranging (LiDAR) in 2010 and in 2018. For more information on these available datasets see their respective pages, linked at left.
All acquired imagery data is available upon request, free to MRCOG member agency representatives or for a small fee to private entities to cover labor or material costs in case an external hard drive must be provided and shipped. If you are interested in accessing this collected data or partnering with MRCOG on ortho-imagery or LiDAR acquisition, please email project coordinator Forest Replogle.
MRCOG also provides ortho-imagery files to New Mexico Resource Geographic Information System (RGIS) Program so that other GIS professionals can download this data directly from the RGIS website. RGIS is a cooperative program between the University of New Mexico and the New Mexico Information Technology Commission and serves as a digital data clearinghouse for geographic information for New Mexico.
