Cross-posting from the galaxy map thread:
I've pasted up a draft of my version of the starmap data with 2D/3D coordinates using Winchell Chung's HabHYG 50ly data.
Systems that I could not match up were commented as ## XXX
The rest of the data is in CSV format with a header line explain the fields, which are also detailed on Winchell Chungs HabHYG download page.
This should be easily convertible to use in NBOS AstroSynthesis 3 or with Winchell's own StereoStar program.
And an additional note since its implied rather than stated:
The 2D map coordinates are the Xg, and Yg, parts of the 3D coordinates - so you get both in the same place.
The 3D coordinates allow you to find the true distance (and time required) for jumps from star to star.
Distance = square root of ( (X2 - X1)^2 + (Y2 - Y1)^2 + (Z2 - Z1)^2 ) where XYZ1 is your start system and XYZ2 is your destination.
The map changes dramatically once you start looking at the true distances between places...
