New MexicoView (NMView)
Welcome to the informational web pages of New MexicoView Remote Sensing Consortium. These pages are revised continually as our capabilities advance.
New MexicoView (NMView) is a consortium of members and institutions that are committed to the advancement and dissemination of remote sensing technology in New Mexico.
We are founded on the concept of free and public exchange of data, information and knowledge concerning the Earth and it's processes, as observed by remote sensing and GIS technologies, for education, research, and local government applications.
NMView is a Member of AmericaView. AmericaView (AV) is a nationwide program that focuses on satellite remote sensing data and technologies in support of applied research, K-16 education, workforce development, and technology transfer.

AmericaView (AV) is a nationwide partnership of remote sensing scientists who support applied remote sensing research, K-12 and higher STEM education, workforce development, and technology transfer. For a more thorough description of our program, see the October 2011 Feature Article in Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing, a publication of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. Remote sensing, the process of detecting or monitoring the properties of an object without physical contact, is a ubiquitous part of 21st Century society and is used in a wide range of applications from business to the natural sciences. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Geological Survey, the AmericaView consortium is comprised of university-led, state-based consortia working together to sustain a network of state and local remote sensing scientists, educators, analysts, and technicians. Our networks, facilities, and capabilities are highly leveraged and used for sharing and applying public domain remotely sensed data in a wide range of civilian applications, from formal and informal education, to ecosystem analysis and natural resources management, to disaster response. Our primary goal is to support the many beneficial uses of remote sensing in service to society. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2003, 39 'StateViews' currently participate in the AmericaView network.
