The one symbol to the top of that "swastika" thing, looks like a battleship or destroyer as viewed top down. And that square with the 6 circles to the right of the swastika is perhaps a building/factory viewed top down.
Im guessing maybe these were used to simulate the actual target size of a real battleship/factory at a certain altitude. These could be used train pilots in accurately dropping their ordnance during ww2 or Vietnam; or perhaps to quickly identify shapes like that during an actual engagement.
Justhome.comcast.net... a theory, but it is a little weird....

I got to this post late. If anyone reads David Hatcher Childress, in his Lost Cities.. series, there are references to stone fences built in the middle of the syrian desert between Iraq and Jordan, well actually they are located in east Jordan, and for a long time people scratched their heads what they could be. There was a whole spectrum of opinions. Eventually everyone settled on them being ancient tools for hunters. They would chase game on horseback and chase them into the stone fenced area. The stone fences were situated in such a way that they had a cross shape, so the game could be herded in from any angle and it would "hook" the game into a smaller area where they could not escape, thus giving the hunters the needed edge to take down the game.
When I first saw what people are calling the swastika, my first thought was this is a cattle herding tool. This part of New Mexico is cowboy country. There are more actual cowboys in this part of New Mexico than there are in Texas. So, this could be fencing that was established a long time ago when the historic yearly cattle drives occured from Mexico to Canada and back.
This swastika is not a ditch, its a raised wall. Look at the topology map. It will confirm what I'm saying.
I don't think the swastika is anything supernatural or spooky. don't have any opnions about the other objects.

Itll tell you what they are.
We have moved past that and are now discussing the motivation, and artistic views of the mechanics of these structures, for lack of better terms.
Or maybe, what they were thinkin when they made em, would work too.
