Projects / Starmap


Starmap reads in the Gliese near star catalog and Yale bright star catalog, computes star positions, and shows an overhead 3-D view of nearby stars, letting you navigate through the 80 light years the Gliese data spans using the arrow keys. More features are planned. Astronomy-interested developers are welcome.
