An Interactive Map Of The Star Wars Galaxy

An Interactive Map Of The Star Wars Galaxy

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.


  • They should do a bit more work on this. The planet size seems to be purely the diameter. They are then calculating the population density against the the diameter rather than the square kilometres of the planet. Either that or all of these planets are ridiculously tiny given that the square kilometres of Earth is 510.1 million. The biggest on that map is Bespin at 118,000km.

  • Countries like the Netherlands or South Korea have population densities around 400 to 500 people per square kilometre, and yet they don’t seem particularly crowded. I find it easy to imagine Coruscant has a much higher population density than that. But 500/km^2 over the land area of Earth is 250 billion people, so a trillion hardly seems out of the question. Assuming the food is made, or imported, or something.
