Terms of Use

Joshua Project information is intended for non-commercial missions research and educational use only. Please adhere to the following guidelines:


Statistics: Statistical data on the Joshua Project website may be used without further permission. Please cite Joshua Project and link to joshuaproject.net where possible.

Photos / Maps / Text: The photos, maps and text displayed on the Joshua Project website are a mixture of non-copyrighted and copyrighted material. Copyright notices are indicated in the source listing below photos, maps and text or are sometimes embedded in photos.

  • Non-copyrighted material

    Non-copyrighted material is public domain and can be used without further permission. Maps created by Joshua Project are not copyrighted and may be used without permission. When possible, please cite the original source and provide a link to the source's website.

  • Copyrighted material

    Joshua Project has obtained usage permissions for the copyrighted material from the original sources. Just because this material is displayed on the Joshua Project website does not imply that it is public domain. Please honor the copyrights of those who have provided Joshua Project with material. Please do not copy this material without permission from the original sources.

  • Copyright Infringement

    We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that all users do the same. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law, and such notices should be reported using our DMCA Policy, which is listed below. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:

DMCA Policy

  • Identify the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, or - if multiple copyrighted works are covered by this Notice - you may provide a representative list of the copyrighted works that you claim have been infringed.

    Identify the material or link you claim is infringing (or the subject of infringing activity) and to which access is to be disabled, including at a minimum, if applicable, the URL of the link shown on the Site or the exact location where such material may be found.

    Provide your company affiliation (if applicable), mailing address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address.

  • Include both of the following statements in the body of the Notice:

      "I hereby state that I have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use)."

      "I hereby state that the information in this Notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of, the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed."

  • Provide your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature.

Using Joshua Project website content

  • Linking to the Joshua Project website: This is the preferred approach. It will help prevent data from becoming dated and disagreeing between sources, will lessen confusion for viewers, will encourage corrections, additions, and questions to be sent to the proper party, and may lessen the possible misuse of the information.

  • Copying Joshua Project data to another website: This approach may be appropriate in limited situations, but it brings the possible disadvantages noted above. Only use for small amounts of data, and with Joshua Project cited as source.

  • Embedding: Embedding Joshua Project web pages or content on another website with URLs formatted such that it is not apparent the web pages came from the Joshua Project website. We ask that this not be done, but rather that direct links be used. Among other negative results, replicating Joshua Project webpages within another site will likely cause search engines to penalize both sites and confuse users.
