The Bible Map Atlas is an add-on for the BibleReader software that complements the King James Version software. There are over 1,150 cities and locales from Biblical times that users can access by tapping the hyperlinks embedded within the BibleReader software while reading the KJV. The maps are multi-colored renderings that users can easily differentiate from land and water locations.
Moreover, users can use this add-on to either zoom-in or zoom-out of the maps. I was able to get as close as 4 miles above a location. The maps aren’t as detailed as what you’d see in GoogleEarth on your PC or laptop. However, the maps serve as a great reference and atlas for viewing lands from biblical times as they correspond to other cities that Bible aficionados have read about over the years.
The Bible map software has a button from which users can easily access the Locations list. Here users can easily navigate and find their location of choice by inputting the city in the identification line or they can scroll up or down the list until they find their city of choice.
