Hello,

I'm new to this website and it seems to be an interesting website. I'm Robert from the Las Cruces, New Mexico. I'm the GIS Specialist for the NRCS Soil Survey Office. I have been in the Federal Government for the last almost six years. Started with the Forest Service in Colorado and then Bishop, California before I settled down in Las Cruces, New Mexico area.

I hold BA in Geography from California State University, Fullerton and a certificate in GIS from University of California, Riverside GIS Extension Program.
I'm looking forward to browse some interesting information about cartography, GIS, remote sensing and some other information.

Robert :)

Hi Robert, I was just recently out in Carlsbad, NM. My friend was attending the NMSU satellite campus there, and was planning on transferring to Las Cruces after 2 years. I hear Las Cruces is "the place to be" in that area of New Mexico :)

My other friend who lives there works for the parks service, inside of Carlsbad Caverns. Maybe you have come across him or his name, it's Paul, can't remember the last name, and he was co-author of a book published about exploring a new cavern found in the early 90s there.

Yeah, Las Cruces is the second best small metro place to be live and it's the best place for people who are retired and they moved here.
One thing in the Las Cruces area is that it is growing like a crazy. I'm a born and raised southern californian so i know what it is like down here. The thing here it is much hotter than southern california.
No i have not met Paul since I didn't work for the Park Service.

Take care,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Since you are down in "caving mecca" I was wondering what you thought about cave maps. There doesn't (in my opnion) seem to be the same level of innovation with respect to cave mapping as there is with other types of mapping. The 3D cave maps I have seen are not quite there yet.

Not to put you on the spot, but have you seen any exemplary cave maps?
