The New Mexico Resource Geographic Information System (RGIS) was designated as the state digital geospatial data clearinghouse by the New Mexico Legislature in 2013. NM RGIS is the state’s only geospatial data clearinghouse and has been hosted and managed by EDAC for over 23 years.

The RGIS Program was created by the NM Legislature in 1988 and was designed, and developed specifically by the EDAC and the Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) at the University of New Mexico.

The RGIS data clearinghouse hosts a wide variety of geospatial data for New Mexico. Data sets available for download include political and administrative boundaries, place names and locations, census data (current and historical), 28 years of digital orthophotography, 80 years of historic aerial photography, satellite imagery, elevation data, transportation data, wildfire boundaries, and natural resource data.

The data are publicly available on http://rgis.unm.edu. Data sets that are too large are available for purchase. To place a custom order, contact the clearinghouse via phone at (505) 277-3622 or via email at clearinghouse@edac.unm.edu.
