New Mexico and Landsat

Detailed Description

Landscapes of rose-colored deserts, broken mesas, and high, snow-capped peaks give New Mexico its reputation as the “Land of Enchantment.” To monitor the well-being of those areas, and to manage their recovery in the aftermath of disasters, New Mexico relies on observations from the Landsat series of satellites operated by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Data from Landsat also assist New Mexico in managing its precious water resources for agriculture, recreation, and industrial and community consumption. Landsat supports a variety of public and private sector decisions across New Mexico and the Nation for effective adaptation to changing landscapes.
