I too like anchovies on my pizza and Greek salad.

Was that directed at me? I admit I'm much better with MongoDB than SQL, so thank you.

CCP has no sense of humour.

Thanks Tippia, that is indeed exactly what I'd need. (I can script a bit, and I use SQL in my mapping programs, but I am not familiar enough with SQL programs to get at the information I'd need). If you can get me the same list for high & null I'd throw some isk your way. Big smile
Sure. You'll have to do the separation between sec levels yourself though. P
Same goes for Jove and wormhole systems, which are in there, but they should be pretty obviously disconnected anyway.

System regions and coordinatesJumps (again, hopefully with duplicates filtered out).

No, it was more intended as a continuation of your post, for those who wanted the same data but who won't/can't be arsed with fiddling with the data dump.

Thanks Tippia, I've been fiddling around with SQL Express since your last post and I haven't figured much out yet. That is perfect.

Wow what a discussion. What makes Eve special is all the people that are in the game that do this kind of thing! My thanks to you all.

Very interesting development in this thread.
I too would like to see what you come up with.

I appreciate what other map developers produce and I can see / understand the advantages of those maps. Yet, I would like to return to the original topic of the thread and express my regret that Ombey's 2D Maps are (currently) not continued.
When I go on a roam, in most cases I will open the latest Ombey's map and plan my route. Using it for many years I can even say that the picture of the EVE universe in my head is defined by Ombey's maps.

I wonder if there are more Ombey's 2D Map friends and if it would be worth to find a common way how to keep them alive and up to date.

I'm uploading a video to Youtube of what I have so far; I'll link it in a new thread when it is done. (it is quite large, so it will take awhile...)

I apologize for hijacking your thread Mik Nostrebor, but I can tell you that I am planning on creating some regional pdf maps of my own, though they will have some cool features (such as the ability to turn on/off layers such as security status, number of moons, etc...). No idea on the time frame though, this is purely a personal project because I enjoy working with the software.

For anyone interested in my project, here's a link to the video:

I created a new thread so as to not hijack this one.

Oh no, hijack away. I am loving watching the conversation. My question has been more than answered.
