– Bible Geocoding

For those of you who are familiar with Google Earth and interested in Bible history and geography you will love this site. This site is a collection of KML files which can be opened by Google Earth, using either the standalone application or the web browser plug-in. These files are divided up by books of the Bible or there is a composite file which can be saved to your computer. All these files are distributed using the creative Commons license which many Bible class teachers will find helpful.  Additionally there are map overlays for comparison between ancient and current times. There are also 14,000+ photos of over 1000 different places mentioned in the Bible, organized by location. This site is DEFINITELY a very handy tool for researching Bible geography.
