Greetings!

Is anyone familiar with New Mexico GIS data? I am looking for the best authoritative sources of data for these general features:

  • Power Plants (especially renewables)
  • Power Lines
  • Power company service areas
  • Critical facilities identified by local emergency management agencies
  • Neighborhood boundaries
  • Community Centers
  • Places of Worship
  • Major Employers

 

REST Service/WMS/Shapefile or similar is ideal. Good metadata (doesn't need to be FGDC-compliant) is a plus.

I'm specifically interested in the Colfax County area around Raton, NM.
Warm Regards,
Micah

Try the New Mexico Resource Geographic information System: http://rgis.unm.edu/

For boundaries: http://www.tax.newmexico.gov/Businesses/geographic-information-system-.aspx

For power plants, try the Energy Information Administration: http://www.eia.gov/maps/layer_info-m.php

Geospatial advisory committee: http://www.gac.state.nm.us/maps/mapservices.html

Electric cooperatives: http://www.nmelectric.coop/nmcoops.php

New Mexico Geographic Information Council: http://nmgic.com/

For utility boundaries, start with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission: http://www.nmprc.state.nm.us/consumer-relations/jurisdiction-list.html  If they don't have it, you will have to ask each utility directly.  Platts makes a commercial version, and they sell service territory data: http://www.platts.com/products/utility-service-territories-north-america-map

Confax County has IT and EM contacts listed on their website: http://www.co.colfax.nm.us/

Anyone else having this issues with the New Mexico RGIS site:

I really like the organization and content of the site overall.
