Data-Driven Generative Star Charts
Star Mapper is my side project to keep up my C++ skillset I gained at Leap Motion while my work at Microsoft has me focused on C# and Unity. Star Mapper is developed in C++ with OpenFrameworks. I take in real-world star data in CSV format from the HYG Star Database, then render it in realtime along with a style editor. I'm constantly tweaking shaders and adding new visuals like various grids and map projections. All the images here were produced in the real-time style editor.
