Search for Tool: Distance Grid

asked Aug 26, 2015 by DagHamnar (120 points)
I'm searching for a tool which generates a list or even better a grid of Distances.

I would enter a list of start systems, one per line. Then enter a target System. After  pressing the "Go" Button I would wish to see then a list with distances from start to target.

Or to compare alternatives, perhaps add 2-3 target systems. Then you could generate a table where you can sort and filter on these distances.

The last feature would be a grid. Only entering a list of systems, without targets. As an result a grid table with all system x and y are correlated to there distances between themselves.

Is there a tool which offers this kind of functionality? Or evt. a part of this? If not, do you think this is a complex thing?

I personally don't know of such a tool (doesn't mean it does NOT exist) which does that directly but if you are into Python I think I have a solution for you. Trade Dangerous is built in such a way that those kind of commands are relative easy to achieve. I know some one asked something similar in the TD thread quite a while back. Kfsone (author) could help him with a small and elegant solution. Can't find the post back atm. You might consider posting your question there - preferable after search that thread.

Another good place for this kind of question is my "What is the most efficient way to crowdsource the 3D system coordinates" thread. All kind of coordinates wizards are their, quite a few with internal tools which could be adjusted for your needs.
