Create a database of biblical issues and stances with faceted browsing and graphical functionality.
I’d like a database of biblical issues and stances with faceted browsing (allowing sorting and filtering), as well as graphical functionality.
For a longer description and justification, see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133058/865216.aspx#865216.
For example, facets could include Country, Date, Denomination and Stream, Type of Work (e.g. technical commentary, devotional commentary, academic study, popular paperback, sermon); issues could include all the debated points discussed in the major commentaries or outlined in works such as SIL’s Exegetical Summaries (https://www.logos.com/product/38965/exegetical-summaries-series).
I suspect it's worth a lot more than that, Neil, though I realise that my presentation of the data on Jude is nowhere near as helpful as what I think Logos could easily produce. I also recognise that a dollar from every Logos user would go a long way...

I'd buy that for a dollar!!
Thanks, Rolo. This data, along with the data available at https://faithlife.com/logos-library-theology-denomination-tags/documents should help. You can include or exclude resources based on your choice of denomination and theology, and you can combine a number of denominations and/or theologies that you are particularly interested in.
Some people use the data to filter out what they consider heretical, some people use it to understand different views, and some people use it to try to help them understand different views. If Logos produces the data, we can each use it in the way that suits us best.
I just started using Logos/FL and I've kept putting it off (over a year now) mainly because of this issue: heretical stuff mixed in with truthful stuff. This applies to Logos resources, packages, and shopping on the website.
I don't want to filter by one particular denomination/branch as that would be too limiting. I do want to exclude certain denominations from all my searches so I don't have to manually examine each and every resource.
Because of this Logos/FL is unwieldy to me.
I've added examples of the kinds of graphs and summary data that could be produced here: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133058/918806.aspx#918806, including the data for transparency.
