Thinking of getting into exploration. Im thinking it may be better to go in low populated area's to avoid competition and low sec ganks. What systems / regions would you suggest ?

Check the map (and dotlan) for activity. I foresee that some replies below this one will be attempts of traps mixed with good suggestions.

I want to find the lowest populated systems and post them on a public forum, cause that will make them stay quiet! Roll

The best area is high sec solitude

My theory would be areas in between popular regions, those systems people never see as they make their way to Amarr or Jita.

Well I like to use WH's to sneak into unpopulated Null systems

For hi - low sectors, just fly around and you'll find some you like

Here's the direct link to the Dotlan page which might help you: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/stats/2014
Scroll down to "top ten least traveled systems." Do some research on those systems, look at stats from other years (2013) and quickly you will find patterns and be able to find similar systems on your own. For instance, one of the best high sec areas to do exploration are the "islands," i.e., high sec pockets surrounded by low sec. Sites tend to pile up in these systems. Solitude is of course the biggest, but there are many others.

One of the best parts of exploration, though, is finding your own areas that fit your play style, so your best bet is to get in space and try out different locations.

Uhm dotlan is VERRY easy in use.Check the regions for number of jumps , number of npc destroyed and number of pvp.It's the best tool to look for a quiet home base or for a great pvp area .

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.

Low sec. In general when I want to be left alone I hit 0.2 or 0.3 systems well away from pipes or systems with stations. You can literally go days without seeing anyone else.

High sec. Anywhere outside of six jumps of a market hub.

Without doing any research, I'd guess Aridia high sec 'island' has to be pretty quiet. At least it was back when I used to live there.

Rancer & Tama are pretty quiet.

Follow Chribba's advice. Eve already provides you with the tools you need to more safely (not 100%) navigate through New Eden. Use them.
