Description: Geographic information science (GIS) and field work were applied to extend Major Land Resource Area (MLRA) 41, Southeastern Arizona Basin and Range, from Arizona and New Mexico into Sonora and Chihuahua, Mexico. The result of this analysis is a tentative boundary line that delineates MLRA 41 for both the United States and Mexico based on elevation, soils, temperature, precipitation, and vegetation. This delineation will allow for a more effective linkage of research and increased availability of information across the international border.

Keywords: geographic information systems (GIS), resource management, boundaries, international borders, precipitation, temperature, vegetation, soil, elevation, Arizona, New Mexico, Mexico
