Soweit und Bisher.

As far as I can tell, both these worlds mean "as far as..." Is this a correct observation?

If so is there any difference?

There is a difference.

Soweit ich weiß ... = As far as I know...

Bisher habe ich nur gekochtes Fleisch gegessen = Up until now, I've only eaten cooked meat

Soweit mir bekannt ist... = As far as I'm aware...

Das war mir bisher nicht bekannt = I wasn't aware of that until now

So bisher has to do with time, while soweit is more abstract?
