Bible Mapper 2.0

Dave Barrett has let me know that Bible Mapper 2.0 has been released.  Bible Mapper 2.0 does a lot:

Bible Mapper is a fully interactive, highly accurate Bible mapping system that helps you quickly and easily create customized maps of the Holy Lands or study a particular period and aspect of Bible history. With Bible Mapper you can:

+ select the types of standard map objects you want to appear on your map (cities, mountain peaks, rivers, roads, political boundaries, etc.)

+ select terrain imagery (relief and elevation, satellite land cover, etc.) or even load your own

+ select which biblical eras to display (only those cities and boundaries that existed during that period will be displayed)

+ change the color or style of almost any object on your map, including the terrain

+ create your own custom objects (or make a duplicate of a standard object) right on your map, including points, lines, areas, and ellipses, and apply a uniform style to it from a style library

+ texturize your lines or boundary areas, allowing the underlying relief to be combined with it

+ import basic geographic data (points, lines, areas, etc.) created by other software and customize it on your map

+ print, save, or export your map, or copy it to the Windows® clipboard

+ quickly calculate the exact distance of a road, river, or custom line object

+ find a place from biblical times just by clicking on it in the Find box

+ read an encyclopedia article about a biblical place

Bible Mapper is the ideal tool for developing customized maps of Bible lands and researching Bible places.

You can get all of the details at  I really like the screenshot below that illustrates some of the new capabilities.  The program offers a lot of features and it's easily worth the $35.  But you can download it and try it out before buying.
