New Mexico Atlas

Benchmark Maps
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

The digital edition of the New Mexico Road & Recreation Atlas is derived from the highly-acclaimed and printed edition.

Since 1995, Benchmark Maps has been field-checking the American West. Benchmark field teams spent three weeks in New Mexico in early 2012, checking new highways and back road conditions. They confirmed edits received from discriminating map users, who also happen to be Benchmark’s most loyal customers and friends.

Field-checker Ryan Lewelling describes the accuracy gained by Benchmark’s field efforts: “If there's a trailhead, we've been there. If there's a gate, we've crossed it. If there's a campground, it's in the right spot. We spend the extra time making sure each location is accurate so users won't have to second guess like they do with other commonly used maps today.” He notes that New Mexico has always been “an extremely friendly state that is welcoming to all, and boasts some of the oldest history in the United States. Folks in recreation & land management do their job well to help people enjoy the lands. Everywhere you look, New Mexico has recreation opportunities.” Benchmark’s goal is to convey this enthusiasm to the reader, through details that reveal the state’s personality and by providing, in Lewelling’s words, “the best atlas and map products for every corner of New Mexico.”

Whether planning a day trip or an extended adventure across the state, Benchmark Maps 2012 line of products for New Mexico are essential companions for exploring the Land of Enchantment.
