The ultimate app for Geography/Geology amateurs and professionals."

- Mel Martin, TUAW.com

Geology NM is the edition of the popular GIS (geographic information system) covering the state of New Mexico. It is a self-contained application (no Internet or cellular access required) that contains a vast amount of information about the geology and geography of New Mexico. Using the iPhone's GPS, it enables you to navigate the state and get a much better understanding of your surroundings, identify geological formations, mines, quarries, rivers, etc....

This release contains 27 layers, which can be combined in any desired way:

- states outlines

- the complete geological map from USGS

- terrain elevation

- zip codes

- over 18, 000 named features (summits, tunnels, cliffs, bridges, etc...)

- fire history

- annual precipitation

- all earthquakes in recorded history over 3.0 magnitude

- over 8, 000 mineral resources

- active mines

- quaternary faults

- old faults

- public land ownership

- hydrologic units

- EPA ecological regions

- USGS quadrangles

- township and range

- urban areas

- counties

- hydrology

- roads and major streets

- railroad tracks

- cities and towns

- over 600 potassium/argon dates

- state plane zones

- UTM zones

- main aquifers

Each layer contains additional information about each feature. For instance, the geology layer has a description of the unit's name, age range, rock type, and description. Each mine has a name, a commodity, a facility type, and a company name. See our web site for more information about each layer.

There have been a number of improvements since the release of the sister programs covering CA, TX, NY/NJ/CT, FL, WA/OR, AZ, CO, UT and NV. Two new layers (ecological regions and annual precipitation) have been added. A few minor bugs have been fixed.

Goes perfectly with the Arizona app

This is excellent. The precipitation layer and zip codes are welcome additions.

What a cool concept

I've dabbled a bit in GIS, and this is as close to it as I've seen on the iPhone. Very powerful. I hope they open up the platform to even more layers.

Nice app but missing some fire history

So far looks like a pretty good app, but I turned on the fire history and the Cerro Grande Fire of 2000 is not shown and I don't know which other fires are missing. I don't know how many years of fire history is supposed to be included, but I know the fire history covers the year 2000 because there is another fire listed "Chance" from the year 2000. The zip codes are nice, but it is missing some zip codes. I think it will be a very good app as it matures. I would like to also see the smaller towns shown without having to zoom way in. I will look forward to upgrades. I would also like to be able to enter a location when I select the "show location". Now it cannot determine my location on my iPod Touch. But once more I will state that it looks like a good start.
