ExploreNM is created by Kenneth Ingham with help from my wife Diana Northup.
Kenneth has a day job doing computer security consulting, so this site is written and maintained in his ``copious spare time''.
Diana is a biologist at the University of New Mexico. She is the driving force beind the plant information on the site, and responsible for helping with the appreciation of nature that we see while hiking.
Currently, we use a Canon EOS-5D Mark II for most of the pictures. We use Canon raw format, and this 21.1 megapixel camera is capable of taking great quality pictures for prints, etc. You can contact us for details if you want to use any of the original high-quality images on this site.
Older cameras we have used, in order, are: Canon EOD-40D, Canon EOS-10D, Nikon Coolpix 5700, Nikon Coolpix 800.
The pre-digital camera equipment was a Canon A-1 or F-1 on Kodachrome 64 or Kodachrome 200 and then the photos were scanned into a Kodak Photo CD. We did acquire a Nikon LS-2000 slide scanner, but this was about the same time that we got the digital camera, so not many of the scans from it are here.
Image processing by the GIMP.
The location maps on the hike and campground pages are made using the US Census Department's Tiger Mapping service. Kenneth wrote the ExploreNM dynamic mapping software, which generates the rest of the maps you see on this site.
The machine hosting these web pages is running FreeBSD and Apache httpd. It is provided by Kenneth Ingham Consulting, LLC.
