Locations of New Mexico Foray Sites   (sg2)
This page contains GPS co÷rdinates for meeting places and foray sites.
  • The following locations include co÷rdinates in one or more of these formats:
  • Latitude / Longitude in Degrees & decimal Minutes
  • Latitude / Longitude in decimal Degrees
  • USNG (US National Grid)
  • I have borrowed the Los Alamos area location code(s) from the Jarmie, Rogers, Balice research studies.

    Datum:  Unless otherwise noted, co÷rdinates refer to the NAD83 / WGS84 datum. (Note, however, that many NM & CO USGS maps still use NAD27.)

    Sandia Grid:

  • 6-character Sandia location labels (e.g. ap3357) refer to a grid based on minutes of lat/long (nad83).
  • Labels [in brackets] are based on decimal degrees.
  • Labels (in parentheses) are based on USNG.
