BibleWorks and Geomapping

In an earlier post (Biblical Studies and Technological Tools: Mapping Biblical Sites - Update) I noted how OpenBible.info had provided a mashup of every biblical site with the GoogleMaps data. Now, thanks to Pasquale Amicarelli who has been doing an incredible amount of work creating free resource modules for BibleWorks, that mashup is integrated into BibleWorks. It does require that you be online, and a high-speed connection is really needed, but if a location is mentioned in the biblical text, the high-resolution satellite imagery of the location is only a couple clicks away. Go to this thread in the BibleWorks forum to get the necessary files to download, or, thanks to Michael Hanel at the Unofficial BibleWorks Blog, get the file directly here.
