The other day I ran across a file that I hadn't worked on since last Summer, almost a year ago. It was a map of Low Sec that I had started back when I was running Lucifer's Hammer and never got around to finishing. Worse than that, I had completely forgotten about it.
The goal of the map was simple. To provide a visually compelling and easy to read map of all Low Security systems in New Eden that could be downloaded in PDF format. Most digital Eve maps are image files and so are limited to how much they can be enlarged. I wanted my map to sit in my second monitor and be enlarged as much as I wanted and still be readable. That meant PDF vector art.
Secondly, I'm not a carebear so I don't care about station services, asteroid belts minerals, or any of the countless other bits of data some maps are encumbered with. I just want to know how to get from point A to point B so I can plan a roam. Quickly and easily. Don't get me wrong, there are many wonderful and amazing maps out there, this isn't a bust on any of them. But I wanted what I wanted and I couldn't find it, so I made one instead.
This map isn't intended to be perfect and I'm sure it has its share of errors, I am human after all. But it achieves the goals I had set forth for it, so I am pleased at the result. I hope that others will also find it useful.
Feel free to share the link with your friends on your Alliance/Corp forums or however else you feel like sharing. This is a map for everyone that wants it.
