What really impressed me was their using the Book of the Wars of YHWH for much of their locational information. I'm disappointed Moses had a copy in his library, but Logos refuses to carry it.Geeked

Veli, from what I've seen (just spot-checked a few places), there is both U.S. and metric measurement given.

Ha!

You may have already seen this, but you can see a bit more here (from Carta). (Scroll down to the "Download" tab for two sample pages.)

This atlas could take a lifetime to review, but I'm shooting for 2014. :)

I would have loved it in Logos but it is too late now (for me).

Ben:

Any chance we'll see some of these Carta materials in Logos? I always see these at SBL and think "wow, those are great visuals."

Or perhaps The Sacred Bridge?

Yes

A bump for the Sacred Bridge.

Hoping that Logos and Carta can agree to put it out!

I was thinking the same thing yesterday.

I just got the free upgrade to the latest edition of SB on my other software a couple weeks back. This really should be in Logos too. I do not think Accordance has any type of an exclusive contract. Although I do know they have been releasing a lot new title from them in the past month or so. So Carta is not opposed to their works in computer format and being the standard reference work it is a shame Logos users can't get it.

We know this is true. The issues seem to revolve around contractual details. I hope that both companies will re-enter negotiations to work out the details - whatever they are.

Or Logos/Bible! can't support the gorgeous high-definition images?  At least my Logos images are pretty smudgy.

We like geology, and zooming in to the archaeological construction blocks, or the hillside views is great.  I notice more and more scholarly books are including the specific geological influences (pottery identification, farming, climate, roads, etc).

Okay, Lee, you asked, here it is.

I started another forum thread just on The Sacred Bridge, too. It's awesome.

Yes Thanks. That was fairly comprehensive and well argued.

The way things are now, Logos is probably waiting in the wings for the third edition, before getting the scoop.

Thanks, Lee, and you're welcome.

Third edition? They just released the second. Not sure how far off that would be....

I appreciate your efforts to provide an extensive review for this great resource. Hopefully some day it will be in Logos.

Sure thing! Agreed.

By the way, even the new L6 Starter package has Paul H. Wright's well-done Rose Then and Now Bible Map Atlas with Biblical Background and Culture.

It is an odd title, indeed, but it was previously published in very similar form as Carta's Greatness, Grace, and Glory--so I guess there is a Carta resource, of sorts, in Logos already!

One bummer, though, is that the images I've seen so far (in the patriarchs section) are not very high-res in Logos.

I am aware of this and appreciate having it in Logos.

I realize that they are not the best but I didn't think they were that bad either. Let's keep hoping for the full Cara atlas.

Now you're making me wonder why it isn't in any of the denominational packages.

There is also another resource that contains 48 maps from the Old MacMillian Bible Atlas.  It is the KJV Bible Commentary by Edward Hindson. Here is the link https://www.logos.com/product/1202/kjv-bible-commentary .  The maps are black and white and generally low rez but still helpful.
