I'm currently working on a map for the EVE universe where I load all of the star location data and draw them to a window. I wont give you the details, but I'll get you pointed in the right direction.
Can you elaborate on this?
Ya, it's one of those side projects that seems to never get done. I've played EVE off and on for a couple years, and had downloaded their star data (EVE data dump), and have been working on a java map where you can load the universe, solar systems, and store info about the systems. You can even add your own fleets and POSes. I plan to have the final version web enabled so that groups can plan fleet moves in real time.
However, I'm currently not playing EVE...I've let my account lapse. I'm currently playing WOW. So the map is on hold again. :-) Below are a few of the screen shots.
This is the EVE universe.
You can right click on a star in the Universe map and get to the solar system map. Below, the blue markers are friendly fleets, and the red are enemy.
