How this map came to be:
The first edition of this map came out in 1998 as part of a two-sided, folded map that was sold at visitor attractions, convenience stores, gas stations, and similar locations. That was back in the days before GPS revolutionized the map industry.
On the back side of the map were printed two smaller maps: one of downtown Portland and one of the entire state. More information about these other maps is available here
Some of those printed maps were never folded, but instead were laminated. The laminated maps were used for promotional display at retail locations, as well as sold to people who wanted a unfolded map they could put up on one of their walls.
As maps became available on computers, cellphones, and other devices, the popularity of folded paper maps declined, so much so that I no longer publish them. But I still have some of the laminated maps, and map-lovers still enjoy them, which is why I sell them here. The laminated map for sale here is the 2000 version of the map.
