Posters & Cards
We have several geologic maps and geologically themed posters and cards available for purchase that are suitable for framing, lamination, and classroom use. Note cards and post cards are useful for many occasions. Both our main office in Socorro and our satellite office in Albuquerque stock these items, or you may order them by phone or fax.
The nineteen mineral specimens featured on this poster offer a glimpse of some of the most beautiful minerals in New Mexico. Photographed by well-known photographer Jeff Scovil, specimens are from the collection of the Mineral Museum on the campus of New Mexico Tech in Socorro. The map includes a descriptive poster guide with it. Produced by the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources in cooperation with the Mining and Minerals Division of New Mexico's Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department. Posters are rolled and mailed in a cardboard tube.

This spectacular view of New Mexico from LANDSAT satellites orbiting the Earth is printed in shades of green, blue, and red for a natural-looking image. Residents of New Mexico will recognize many of the state's unique landforms: the fertile valleys of the Rio Grande and Pecos River, Mount Taylor, Valle Grande, Elephant Butte Reservoir, and the young lava flows near Grants and Carrizozo. These and many more less-distinctive features are labeled. Computer wallpaper samples are available. 2000, 47" x 54", scale 1:500,000
