I put this together to use the map's x- and y-coordinates to pinpoint every location on both the CRB map and the CMOM map:

And I updated my own list (to mostly include wiki links) based on these updates!

Great! Putting a “last updated” tag in the doc would be helpful keeping up with the updates.

I'll remember this if I go back to update.

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...

Thanks for linking that distance calculator. I don't reckon Winchell's apps run on a Mac...

Sorry, I don't have a Mac to test on - but I think there are "Windows emulator" type things like Parallels that could work.

True, that.
