[Accordance 10: Basic] Remember the old Bible map transparencies of yesteryear? There's a reason they aren't around any longer. In 1998 Accordance launched its interactive and customizable Bible Atlas, the first of its kind in Bible study software. Using the metaphor of transparent layers, Accordance's Atlas offered unequaled flexibility and ease of use. Today the Atlas remains one of Accordance's most popular resources. It includes a dozen different backgrounds, thirty region layers, seventy-five routes (most of them animated), thirteen site collections, and six sample layers, as well as continuous elevation and geographic coordinate readouts and rotatable 3D perspectives. Users can even create their own map layers! Join Dr. J as he offers this retrospective look at the Accordance Atlas.

I've been getting into more Bible atlases lately, so am looking forward to watching this one all the way through, Tim!

 

Funny choice of print atlas for your foil in the first minute... I've been reading it lately, and really enjoying it! (Its clear plastic overlays are actually really cool.) :)  Now, on to the rest of the podcast, and getting further acquainted with Accordance's Atlas. Thanks for producing this, Tim!

You guys are very welcome, and thanks!

 

I actually like the Rose maps, Abram. It's the overhead projector I found so frustrating! Well, that and trying to line multiple transparencies up on the machine. The books don't suffer from either issue.

Dr. J – Hurrah for the demise of the transparency!  I never taught with them, but I certainly sat in classrooms where they were used.  One thing you didn't mention is that the miserable things are slippery and have static electricity problems as well.  Can't remember the number of times some poor instructor had them slide all over the place, or get out of order.  I don't think anyone who ever used them, or anyone who endured the disruption that came when they didn't cooperate, is mourning their loss.

 

The podcast has made me want to dig into the Help and figure out how to customize a map.  Thanks.  Our Sunday school students certainly enjoyed them, and I know they can be used to greater advantage than we've used them in the past.

Hah!

 

I was sure that this podcast would spark a storm of complaints about using transparencies years ago. So far, you're the only one, Julie!

 

Surely there are others with their own horror stories to tell.
