The GIS Program supports all project activities at the New Mexico Natural Heritage Program. GIS is integrated into a diverse set of projects that include vegetation mapping, animal movement analyses, conservation site selection, fire ecology, vegetation change detection, and habitat models.

NHNM specializes in ESRI GIS and ERDAS Imagine applications.
See GIS Standards.

NHNM has been using satellite imagery since 1992 to map the distribution of plant communities and model potential habitat for plants.

The program is currently developing an internet mapping site in cooperation with the Department of Defense.
