Somewhat clunky, but may be of use to folk.

When I get time I'll tidy it up and write some documentation.

Thanks Peter

As a web dev, I'm really curious what you're representing here. Not sure I follow what the map is trying to do besides show player positions and resources and such.

Whoo! Was this a 9 player game on a canvas "board"? And if so what Turn were you all on?? Totally cool if you played with 9 online too.

Given two unexplored Sector I's, an explored/unoccupied Sector I, unexplored Sector II, gap with exploring around in the III Universe and the presence of a single ship (starbase??) of unknown design on Theta Pegasi, I'm a bit unclear. Turn 3?

BTW, is it just me, or is the realization that the Eridani start on Epsilon Eridani cool? Again.

That's just it, really - an easier image to comprehend than a photo of the map, which is usually a bit of guesswork to make out - or multiple photos that you need to make.

Ideally I want to divorce the turn setup from the general information about a map, so you can just point to a file and display a particular turn.

It's turn 2 of a game - I took multiple photos as well, showing player boards, the tech board and the map. This is just an extension of the map to make it readable

I present it here as a way for folk to expand on it if they want to use it as part of a face-to-face or online game. (and basically improve my clunky code because I've not touched javascript in years)
