This page is about a map I made of the galaxy far, far away.... which is the setting of the Star Wars movies, books, and games. You can download the map at the download section, but please don't hotlink any of the maps. The pdf version has the best quality and allows full-text search by pressing ctrl-f, very useful. Feel free to print the map for non-commercial use. You can adapt it if you like, just let me know if you do. Enjoy!
The map is an adaptation of Eric "cartographer" Przybylski's map that used to be hosted at navcomputer.com. It started with changing the colors to suit my preferences, but I noticed the star systems that are first mentioned in Star Wars Episode III (such as Utapau, Mustafar, and Felucia) were not on the map. I decided that starting over by tracing the jpg and turning it into a vector image would be a better idea than just adding the names to the jpg version of the map. This would enable me to search for a star system with a pdf viewer. Then I discovered Modi's fabulous galaxy map (do visit his website at starwarsatlas.uw.hu), which appeared to be much more consistent with the movies, and the expanded universe, and it contained many more systems. I decided to include all those star systems too, and to use the consistent placement of the systems in Modi's map, while keeping the beautiful isometric projection of the navcomputer map. First I copied everything from the navcomputer map, then I copied all the star systems from Modi's map. Then I adapted the coordinate grid from Modi's map to my map, and straightened it out, by moving some of the star systems and region borders. Finally, I copied all existing detail maps from navcomputer, and Modi's maps, and created an index for the map.
The map consists of three pages.
The current version of my map contains all the star systems from Modi's galaxy map (april 2007), all systems from Eric "cartographer" Przybylski's map (april 2006, before the nav-computer.com website went down), and some systems that appear on the Dark Horse Comics map (april 2007). All systems on the Dark Horse Comics map will be included in the next version. The original Dark Horse map can be found at darkhorse.com. Most of the sectors and star clusters included in this version of the map come from the navcomputer map. The Imperial Remnant comes from Modi's map. Modi's map includes many more sectors. I decided not to include most of these sectors for esthetical reasons. Every section of the grid corresponds to 1500 parsecs of the galaxy. The map is a isometric projection of a flattened version of the galaxy. In "reality" (obviously we're talking about fantasy here and not reality, but oh well) the core of the galaxy would be a bulge. This map displays all star systems projected onto the middle plane of the galaxy disk. (There is no data on the "vertical" coordinates of the star systems, so even if I wanted to include it I wouldn't be able to.) The map represents the Galaxy 19 ABY, directly after the Galactic Civil War.

If you think something is wrong or missing on the map, please send me evidence (for example, snippets of text from books, or points in the movies) that show this. If you want to change the map or print it for some other reason than personal use, please let me know.
