An idea for Atlas

I have not used Atlas all that much. I find it clumsy and too rigid.....It works if you are searching a specific journey and you want to see that journey alone, but if you have any questions apart from the line on the screen you are out of luck.

I was just trying to see how far Philippi was from Rome and any info on the route Epaphroditus would have had to take (if Paul was in Rome) it was painful to get a map......

What if...... you can open Atlas and see the biblical world and similar to timeline specify a particular time (1st century) then you overlay major cities, Pauline churches etc. Then overlay the map with roads, shipping routes between churches. There could be estimated travel times to travel from Rome to Philippi etc.

Does anyone else find Atlas clumsy?
