I'd put the Accordance Atlas up against Logos' Atlas any day.
- Logos' atlas is painfully slow because it requires an internet connection. Accordance's Atlas has always been lightning-fast (like the rest of Accordance). The Accordance Atlas does not require an internet connection unless you want to jump to a modern day Google map.
- You can't edit the Logos Atlas, which is basically just a collection of static maps; you can edit the Accordance Atlas--in an infinite number of ways.
- Distance on the Logos Atlas can only be measured "as the crow flies." The Accordance Atlas lets you measure distance by tracing known routes between locations.
- Accordance displays latitude, longitude, elevation, and Israel coordinates simply by moving the mouse over the screen. There's no way to determine this information from the Logos Atlas.

I don't argue about the speed of Accordance maps, here they're in the league of their own! :-)
Color themes for the 2D maps could be improved. Maybe it's just me, but most of those color themes look terrible to me. I really wonder does anyone use Colors, Vivid Colors, Grays, Infrared, Nightvision or Satellite color themes? When I compare the Satellite theme with the Google Earth satellite images, Accordance's version looks rather dark… (See the attached screenshot)
3D maps could be much improved—text overlays look terrible. Fonts have no anti-aliasing. Text could be on a different layer and always clearly readable. Also 3D map manipulation could be better. Many Macs have touch pads, why not use them to rotate 3D maps? All I can do now is to zoom in / out.
