This website was launched in Corvallis, Oregon, USA, in 1994 and has been continuously online ever since. From 1994 until early 2018, all of the hundreds of reports, articles, editorials, photographs, videos, maps, and other digital content have been made available for free -- without a single advertisement, fundraising activity, subscription, request, or any other method of charging for these resources. We have recently made the decision (my family, friendly advisors, and I) to begin making commercial products from this content in an effort to eventually make the NW Maps Co. website self-sufficient, or even profitable. Most of the current content is comprised of my own (or NW Maps Co.) copyrighted works from 1980 to the present, and there is an existing plan to eventually add newer commercial content as well. Beginning sometime in 2018 we will begin charging reasonable amounts for downloading select JPEG, PDF, and MP3 files from this website. Hundreds of such files will continue to remain free for most of the foreseeable future, particularly those products with other coauthors or copyright holders. In addition to downloadable digital files, we are planning to begin publishing and distributing hardcopy books, ebook serials, color prints, and photographs in the near future to fully test our capabilities.
