Information about the Albuquerque Geodetic Reference System.
The Albuquerque Geodetic Reference System (AGRS) provides a single homogenous coordinate system for the orderly development and positioning of subdivisions, roads, power lines, and all the other components of the City infrastructure.
It consists of over 2000 control monuments established and maintained by the City with high-accuracy surveying methods. The associated geodetic data is provided to both public and private sector users through the City website.
The AGRS provides a common foundation for the coordination of all mapping, surveying and engineering projects and ensures that the components of the City infrastructure will be positioned with accuracy commensurate with the coordinated and orderly growth of the City.
