Where on Earth in the Bible?

Have you ever come across a place name while reading your Bible and wondered where it was? OpenBible.info has plotted the locations of every identifable place mentioned in the Bible and coordinated the information with Google Earth to give you satellite images of Bible place names sorted by book and chapter. The process is called Bible Geocoding.

This could be a helpful site to have open while reading or studying a particular book of the Bible to keep track of each place on the map. But I am not very creative when it comes to these things. Let’s hear it from all our Google Earth techies out there. How else could you utilize this cool Bible Geocoding data site? What are the possibilities?

OpenBible.info is a website that is working on “collecting basic biblical data—such as the locations of all the places in the Bible—into an accessible format. The goal of this site is to make this useful but uncollected data available for you to use and remix however you want.”

    HI Pastor,

    Thanks for the link to this site. I am teaching Sunday School on the Book of Ephesians and It is helpful to be able to put a locale to places mentioned in the Bible.
