Mapping the Stars

Star Mapping Computer Utilities

These are original star mapping utilities which I have written:

An interactive Java star mapping program which displays star locations in 3-D and in stylised "subway map" form.

A PostScript star mapping program to create starmaps from tables of stellar locations.


The best web reference for all things concerning star mapping is Winchell Chung's 3-D StarMaps Page.

The following book contains real information on all stellar objects within 40 light years of Earth:
