Attached is an image of the Avra valley in Southern Arizona, USA from

Effects of Kriging and Inverse Modelling on Conditional Simulation of the Avra Valley Aquifier in Southern Arizona -- Clifton and Neuman

Two related questions

  1. What is this R{int}E-T{int}S coordinate system? Is it US specific? Arizona specific? A reference and how to convert to a global system would be great.
  2. Is there somewhere where I can find a shape file for the designated region? I'm assuming this particular example has been used in several studies.

  • $\begingroup$ Questions for data are more suited for OpenData.SE, questions for coordinate systems are slightly more suited for GIS.SE. Two questions in one is not suited for SE in general. $\endgroup$
