This app downloads your Cmdr's details and system, faction, scan and station data for use with all popular online and offline trading, prospecting and shopping tools.

NOTICE: Changes in 1.5 keep this from working properly. Fix expected January. See my recent posts on https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=175468&page=3&p=3260983#post3260983 This OCR program will read the data of an astronomical object that is presented on the left side of the system map when the object is selected. This makes all details of the object relevant to exploration accessible for further processing. Screenshots can be fed directly to the program by pressing a key combination while playing the game. Processing object data is relatively fast and effortless, so the program it will integrate well in your normal exploration / scanning activities. The application will collect all scanned data in a database and present it in a sortable and configurable grid. You can cut&paste from the grid to your favourite spreadsheet and e.g. do visualisation there. The application is in Beta, but already offers reliable functionality. Currently supports only 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 resolution, other resolutions are planned.
