Is there any good way to find a topographical map of Israel - without it being related to a reign of a king or journeys - but simply a good map? I miss the old Libronix Atlas that allowed you to plot places and create a great topographical map. Thanks.

The current atlas does have its limitations. Check out this interactive website of the entire Roman world which has topographical markings - http://dare.ht.lu.se/

Did I hear Libby?!

I went back to see just how good the Logos Bible Atlas is. And indeed, it has a nice topo presentation, what to include, periods, etc. I was singularly impressed that the little blue lines are labeled 'rivers'.

Mr Pritchett is credited with the text display engine ... as you zoom in or out, what gets displayed. 23 years later, the display logic is quite good. He even provided an option to forgo the site overlap logic. Very nice.

Regarding the OP's query, BibleMapper (google it; not Logos) remains the closest match. I think BM's developer then went on to do the Accordance opus.

How did you get to the topo map?

The Logos Bible Atlas is still the best in my opinion and I wish they would revive it. I always enjoyed being able to select my cities, rivers, etc and then be able to zoom in topographically, rotating the map, etc. It was also handy to be able to select a dictionary from the atlas names.
