  Bible Mapper Help
Mark has set up a wiki to provide help for the free Bible mapping tool Bible Mapper. The idea is that (since BM comes free but with no support or help files) the community of users could help each other. I noticed exploring his wiki that David Barrett the creator of Bible Mapper has already chipped in with an answer - this seems a good way for David to be able to provide assistance for users, but without being committed to offering organised regular help, for which surely he'd have to charge!

There is an RSS feed, for compulsive Bible Mappers (like me) to keep up with all the questions and answers or new maps that people upload.

I have only one problem with the system, since I was already a PBWiki user I cannot seem to get added to the BibleMapper Wiki to actually write anything, even a plea for help! And I have one... Somehow, even though I have un- and re-installed the program I cannot select things like rivers, I just get an hour glass and the program hangs for a few moments before continuing as if I had never tried to use the select tool. I wanted to use it to (a) try out David's helpful answer and (b) once I had mastered it document it with screenshots to make it easier for beginniers... Now I'll just have to ask the question here, and email Mark to see if he has a magic key to let me in to the Bible Mapper Wiki ;-)

< wicked > I wonder if Jim will overcome his Wiki phobia enough to use this one? < /wicked thought >


BTW if you do not subscribe to David Instone-Brewer's superb Tyndale Tech Briefings - DO! This time he covers Bible maps and mapping with a really useful summary of much of (the best of) what is available.
