This article is the third of a series of articles that will provide readers and students of the Book of Mormon with specific, provable geographic standards without reference to any real-world geography. The specific standard identified in this article will be referred to hereafter as Geographic Standard No. 3 and will focus on the relationships among west-sea Bountiful, Desolation, the line between them, and the west sea. Following a discussion of this objective standard, currently proposed models will be compared with this standard, and the areas where this standard has not been followed will be shown and discussed.
