Holyland 3-D CD: Free Update

Some of you may have the Holyland 3-D CD produced by Rohr Productions (Richard Cleave).  This flyover program has been released in several versions over the last 5+ years, and is most commonly sold with the Holy Land Satellite Atlas.  A major update is now available from SkylineGlobe.  I haven't had time to play with it myself, but a colleague is impressed with the improvements.  If you have it and want to compare it with Google Earth or NASA Whirlwind and comment below, you're welcome to do that.  The steps to upgrade are these:

1. Install an earlier version (even as old as v. 2).  If you don't already have it, you can purchase the CD with an atlas here ($65).

2. Install the upgrade.

There are more details about the upgrade at Sunday Software.

    Looks like I have version 1 of the Holy Land CD -- before I spring to buy the atlas again to get a newer version, I need to understand whether Skyline integrates automatically with a newer Holy Land, and how. Do you have any information?

  • Scott - I think I'd first try and see if it will upgrade over version 1. It may not, but it doesn't cost you anything more than a few minutes of trying.

    The info that I have on Skyline v5.0 integrating with v2.0 is what I read here:

    They say it's "easy to do."
