Elite:Dangerous Application


EDSM aims to collect distances and calculate systems coordinates inside the ED galaxy.

EDSM (Elite Dangerous Star Map) was at first a community effort to store and calculate systems coordinates around the Elite: Dangerous galaxy.


It is now the main API used by dozens of software and websites to find systems, coordinates, information (governement, allegiance, faction...) and celestial bodies (types, materials...).


EDSM has become a must-have for all respectable explorers, and commanders in the galaxy, with it you can:

  • Track your flight log
  • Track your fleet
  • Track your ranks
  • Write your logbook
  • Write comments and bookmark explored systems
  • Search commodities in stations
  • Search ships in stations
  • And many more... Fly safe commander!
