It was suggested by John Sorenson (and others) that no modeler of Book of Mormon geography should attempt to physically place it without first extracting the “Internal Geography.” The physical maps here, in all their detail, were not formulated until after 16 years of research, which included the Internal Geography and the “Spiritual Geography” (a term coined by us and pertains to land prophecies). 

The expression “truth is stranger than fiction” applies to geography models—perhaps more than anything else—due to how land changes over time (2000+ years for Book of Mormon lands). These are real maps because it’s the real geography.

Land Northward

Narrow Neck

Land Southward

Other Maps

Disclaimer: No person associated with this physical model had any prior involvement with proposed Book of Mormon lands.
