If you’ve ever wanted a bit of perspective on the Star Wars universe, here’s the perfect map.
It’s an interactive map to every Star Wars planet, allowing you to compare every planet’s size, population, density, rotation and orbital period, and surface water. Each planet is ranked by number as well, so if you search for Bespin, you’ll get a quick breakdown of where it sits in the Star Wars galaxy:
It’s funny how assumptions get built up in your head. I never had a general picture of what the biggest Star Wars planet was, but I wouldn’t have pegged Bespin for the title. Consequently, I’d have expected Coruscant to be … well, a little bigger. How else do you fit one trillion sentient beings on a planet?
The data was pulled from the Star Wars API, which is publicly available here (albeit in a far more inconvenient format). Mind you, the API does also have data on species, vehicles, spaceships and other errata.
