- Oddly, Jerusalem doesn't appear in many (any?) of the OT Atlas maps. E.g. in the "Biblical World -- United Kingdom" map, no matter the zoom level, Jerusalem never shows up. The Mount of Olives does, and the Gihon spring does, but not Jerusalem itself.
- I was looking at the "Jesus’ Birth and Circumcision" map, it looks like the route goes through Samaria, which looks like the shortest route, but did Jews not generally go the longer way around (possibly to the east?) to avoid going through through Samaria? I know Jesus did go into Samaria to speak to the woman at the well, but was this atypical?
- David Luyt All Atlas travel routes reflect the judgments of Dr. Barry Beitzel, our chief cartography consultant. The Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels (https://www.logos.com/product/138314/lexham-geographic-commentary-on-the-gospels) has some discussion on this point: https://ref.ly/logosres/lxgeocommgosp?ref=Bible.Lk2.1-7&off=4818
- Thanks, that's really helpful 😀
- Does anyone know how to make the Atlas rotate and also change the angle of view? I was watching Camp Logos from 2020 and Morris was able to do this but it doesn't work the way he said in my current version.
Faithlife User — EditedJon Varner, from the Atlas Dataset Documentation , under Usage > Atlas > Map Navigation (https://ref.ly/logosres/cidbdocl6map1?art=art12): --- To rotate the map: • Shift + Hold Right Mouse Button + Move left or right or • Shift + Arrow Keys left or right To tilt the map: • Shift + Hold Right Mouse Button + Move up or down or • Shift + Arrow Keys up or down To repoint the map North: • Click on the arrow button below the zoom controls in the map window --- Note these controls only work in the desktop app: they're not currently available in the web app.
- What are the Link Sets in the Atlas tool and how do I find information on how to use them. Is it possible to show two maps overlayed on top of each other?
- You can use Link Sets throughout Logos to link two panels to scroll together: see https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016827711-Link-Sets. If you select link set B in Atlas, and the same link set in your preferred Bible, scrolling your Bible will show a selection of maps that include the same reference (but not necessarily just one, depending on the reference). > Is it possible to show two maps overlayed on top of each other? No, we don't currently provide that capability.
- App is saying Im not connected to the internet?? I am.
- LogosCEF.exe is not using the GPU (Windows 10 / NVidia) so the Atlas Tool is very sluggish. The Web app version is great.
