Near Star Map Update

The Near Star Map is currently undergoing an update as it’s being ported to Android. Data on previously included stars are being made current to 2013. Additionally, more of the significant stars between 20 and 30 light-years away are being added to the database.

At present, I’ve attempted to include every star within 20 light-years, and all of the bright stars (F, G, and K spectral types) out to 30 light-years. Several additional near stars beyond 30 light-years are also included while I try to gradually extend the map out to 50 light-years, though not all of that data may be ready before the controls are ironed out and the Android version released.

If you have an opinion on which app stores the Near Star Map should be released to, send mail!
