New Mexico Riparian Habitat Habitat Map (NMRipMap)

The New Mexico Riparian Habitat Map (NMRipMap) provides a comprehensive, fine-scale spatial view of the composition, cover, and structure of riparian and wetland vegetation along New Mexico’s perennial streams and rivers (see Project Summary).

 NMRipMap is designed to serve wildlife habitat management, wetland and riparian conservation and restoration planning, non-native species management, riparian monitoring design, identifying refugia, and more.

Products include a comprehensive New Mexico Riparian Corridor Map and Riparian Habitat maps for major basins of the state as they become available.
