    I'd like to see the side view too though I dare say the vast majority of that travel isn't that far away from the galactic plane.

    If you weren't already aware of it you may be interested in this really cool thing by Cmdr Orvidus where you can upload the log files from your Elite Dangerous installation folder (no need to be signed up to EDDiscovery or anything like that) and it will generate a video of your travels for you.

    Something like this ..

    In my opinion, CMDR Orvidius' visited systems map visualizes things better. Sure, a map by EDDiscovery might seem to cover all the galaxy at first, but a larger image will show you that it's nowhere near filled out. Plus the auto-generated map does say how many systems were uploaded so far: 22,429,586 yesterday, estimated as 0.005607% of the galaxy. Judging by a figure that Frontier have released some time ago, Commanders in total have visited roughly five times as many systems as were uploaded to EDSM.

    That image doesn't have a sideways view, but many of the other charts on the site do. You might want to take a look at the star class heatmap. Note: only a fifth of the uploaded systems are there, because folks have scanned the stars in only that many systems. (I, too, am guilty of not scanning every star I jump to.)

    What's the significance of the yellow color on that map versus the white?

    Although thats a lot, keep in mind theres 400 billion systems in the game and it took us 4 years to discover 22 million. At that rate it will take us another....72,720 years to discover the rest

    Oh you can look at the side also just did not bother taking a snapshot of it there are soo many nice tools out there made by people for free but well i choose this one guess its not really the point the point is that Elite space has been traveled far far away to by space pioneers and it shows for sure hah im starting to like it again all ws a bit bored but now its getting fun again traveling and so (played to much from day one hahahaha )
