Geologic Map Search
- This search form excludes topographic maps (a separate topo search is available).
- You can also find geologic maps in a specific area by using the interactive map below.
- Another way to locate maps is to use either our Interactive Map Portal or the USGS National Geologic Map Database which catalogs maps in various searchable ways.
- Our full-text search will return results from webpages, PDF documents, or other files and can be restricted to just publications or just maps. There is also separate general inventory search.
- You may also want to search our Geologic Bibliography for New Mexico.
- Statewide Geologic Maps of New Mexico:
- Geologic maps of 7.5-minute quadrangles:
- Open File Geologic Maps have been projects of our STATEMAP Program since 1993. The geologic field work and basic research are a primary source of geoscience information for our staff and other geoscientists throughout the region (see our index of STATEMAP open-filed geologic maps).
- Our GM-series geologic maps have been peer reviewed and are generally produced as high-quality offset-printed paper maps.
- Geologic Map compilations (open file reports): These maps reflect a new effort to assemble existing geologic data for an area of importance. These maps build upon the latest mapping completed in the STATEMAP program.
- Our monograph series are another source for geologic maps (often included as plates) and detailed research.
- Most USGS geologic maps of New Mexico are available from our publications office (contact us to see if a map you need is in stock).
Searching for geologic or other maps that cover a given area can be complicated because maps may cover unpredicable areas (e.g. quadrangles, counties, study areas, etc.) and be at various scales. Aside from our statewide maps, most of our maps are of 7.5 minute quadrangles (search by name). Another way to locate maps is to use either our Interactive Map Portal or the USGS National Geologic Map Database which catalogs maps in various searchable ways.
