My dinkum thinkum skills are practically non existent so bear with me. Where can I relocate the various sites on the excellent extensive Honorverse star maps showing ALL the old and very new Junctions? Also a good map of the Sollie league would continue to awe me. Thanks in advance. I love it here. Very relaxing indeed. HB of CJ (old coot) :)

Unless someone has done a very recent, extensive, update, there are no published maps that show All of the textev wormhole connections. There certainly was no such map, other than close hold projects by and for David, as of HonorCon.

Hers one of the collections's with the most cred:

I guess I may as well give a quick note to whet your appetites. I am in the process of producing an improved composite map of all available maps. It's going to surprise some people--I've figured out how to match all the most accurate maps, including the Illegible Map. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to get this out to people, and I'm still working on refining it.

Happy waitings... :mrgreen:

You might want to see if you could put it on SAWA's site with his maps.

I've been trying to decide whether to do this myself, being a minor map geek. Glad to hear you're taking that on instead! I have no Idea if you'd go about it in a similar way, but what I was picturing was a Table approach, capturing distances, references and dates so it would be easy to see what the universe looked like at various dates, and hopefully easier to revise in the face of new data.

Then I remember this is a work of fiction and there is no requirement for global consistency, as much as we might desire it. So ... whatever works, and I'll be thankful.

BTW, having developed search engines before there was a WWW, we called it a specialization of library science.
