The app offers fast display of maps, a full mobile data collection feature for creation of datasets and collect point, lines/tracks, and polygons, aerial/satellite imagery and other online services. To obtain the BLM-New Mexico CarryMap app, please visit the BLM website for information and support.
NM E-Tag allows hunters to tag an animal in the field using their smartphone. Upon submitting the date and time of kill for their license, the hunter will receive a tag number to hand-write on durable material to be attached to the animal.
