Galactic Map

Galactic Regions are specific areas in the Milky Way galaxy. There are 57 regions and 9 major galactic arms mapped out and presented on a high definition map for explorers, chorniclers and storytellers to use in their journeys through the Milky Way.

This is based on the community driven Galactic Mapping Project. The maps, regions, points of interest and names are not officially sanctioned by Frontier Developments. However, some have been adopted by Frontier over the past 18 months. Most notably Beagle Point, Rendezvous Point, Colonia, and lately Hawking's Gap and the Sagittarrii Conflux.[1]

EDSM has a detailed interactive map with tons of information about the galaxy submitted by explorers.

Elite Dangerous - The Galactic Mapping Project - The Galaxy Revealed

The regional maps have been a work in progress since the mapping project was first founded by Erimus back in February 2015. Little by little, as explorers and pioneers traversed the depths of space, they submitted data of their travels to the mapping project to help gradually build up a picture of the galaxy, and over time these player-submitted regions were pieced together.

Hundreds of people helped as intrepid explorers, pioneers who named unseen regions of space that no human had travelled to before. It represents a monumental and successful undertaking by the community that benefits a huge number of players. Special thanks goes to the Rock Rats, Canonn and The First Great Expedition.
