Solar system sovereignty sources

Greetings,

In working up a mapping app, I have a few questions...

1. I've concluded that I must use one of the sovereignty/structures APIs to determine which alliance is controlling a particular nullsec solar system -- is that correct/best practice or am I missing something?

2. Am I correct in using the Incursions API for determining faction sovereignty in Contested systems?

3. As for hi/lo sec solar systems, I can find no static tables nor reference in any of the APIs which will let me identify which faction has sovereignty in each of the 3k+ stable solar systems of empire space. I have the Factions table, but haven't found a use for it. What am I missing -- do I simply assume, for example, that all the solar systems in Metropolis are Minmatar sov unless contested?

Thanks!

There is an XML endpoint that i think is better. It lists solarSystemName, ID, and then factionID, allianceID and corpID:

It also includes high sec systems as well.

DOH! With the advancement of ESI beside CREST, I was treating the XML API as deprecated and expected its features to be in the other two -- lesson learned! Thank you!

It will, soon™ :) (within 12-14month)
XML API is ~deprecated~ in the way it will disappear at the end of the ESI dev, but until then there are still many and many only available there.
