in the past weeks i've made a 3D map built by using Eddb json files shared by Themroc ( thank you ).
The purpose of the map initially was to see the ED's galaxy without starting the game client, time by time thanks to some really appreciated suggestions from Eddb's I.R.C. chat and from my ED community ( DaVinci Corp ) it became a visual tool that let you travel around the galaxy collecting also some usefull informations for
your game sessions.

I hope you'll enjoy it
- systems colored by : 'commodities'
You can find it into : "open controls" -> "color_by" -> "commodities" (2nd choice)
What does it do ?It colors the systems by three different colors : green, yellow, red, bluish
What these colors mean ?
they show you how much time is passed from the last update of the commodities in that system.
It uses the average update date between all the stations' commodities in that system
Green : is passed from 0 to 29 days from last update of the less updated station
Yellow : is passed from 30 to 59 days from last update of the less updated station
Red : is passed more than 59 days from last update of the less updated station
Bluish : has stations which probably have never been mapped
Grey : has no stations in it
