Abstract: As use of Geographic Information Systems has grown and presented new opportunities, it also has raised a number of new issues and problems. Of increasing concern is the management of a growing collection of spatial data sets and applications programs. These data sets and programs are very expensive to produce but relatively easy to share, so there is a great incentive to avoid duplicating production efforts. The trend clearly is toward managing these elements in distributed spatial libraries.
The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute (NMWRRI) continues to be the focal point for Geographic Information System utilization concerning water resources in New Mexico and the southwestern region of the United States. This is an ongoing project with new data continually being added to the database and assistance being given to produce specific GIS products upon request.
Various research activities are supported by the system for water resources planning in the state. The NMWRRI provides GIS support to a number of government and public entities in the state and region.
