Advice: what to charge for my topo/marine maps?
I really haven't been using all my topo & marine maps lately and I'm in de-clutter mode.
I just went on some of the government/commercial sites to try to figure this out but it wasn't simple: anyone know what the going rate is for new topo/marine maps these days?
Also, does anyone know - ballpark - how often new ones are issued? I thought I could easily find out which of mine are still the current-issue but it didn't seem that was going to be a quick hunt.
I didn't realize until Googling that it seems you can just print your own topo's online now? Is there still a market for these?
Anyone have a suggestion what I should ask for these?
