MetaV 2.0 is now available to download as an Access database or as a group of csv files. I have attempted to make it as easy as possible to understand the structure of the data, but feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.
This is perhaps the most complex undertaking I’ve ever engaged in and I know it simply would be impossible without the ongoing guidance and helping hand of the Lord our God. There are many improvements that can and will be made in future versions, but the time for collecting information is past and the time for turning it into action is upon us. As I’ve seen from the response to my infographic, “Mapping God’s Bloodline,” visual presentations of biblical data can reach far and wide, gaining influence in some of the most unlikely sectors of our society.
MetaV provides the foundation for more visualizations of this type. With it, data experts can correlate biblical people, places, and timelines in ways not yet imagined. For the foreseeable future, I shall be focused on bringing the big picture of the Bible into view using modern data techniques. I welcome your ideas and would be happy to share on this blog any visualizations or analyses you have performed.
