I would love to see the Atlas package expanded to include details on Jerusalem--the ability to show the topogrpahy, then add Jebusite, iron age, architectural, etc. features in layers.

A layer of the whole atlas with topographic lines would be nice overall.

These are nice ideas. We can look into adding more local details in a few places, but 90 meter resolution is still rather limited for that. Of course, you can make your own user layer right now.

Topographical lines would add another enormous database to what is already 1 gigabyte, and require a lot of programming to appear correctly at avet zoom.

Remember that the Atlas covers the entire area of the Bible. You can zoom in and create a map window for a small area, but this is quite different from a small map in a printed atlas which can be drawn at very high resolution, alongside another map of the entire world.
