Database Sets

Create your own data sets to display on maps.

Creating a set

Enter a name for the set in the input field and hit enter. Your set and a tab for it will get created and you will be ready to edit its details:

Name The name of the set is also displayed in the tabs
Description Describe the data the set holds
Color Mode Choose on how the data gets colored
Color Low This color is used for the lowest value of the set
Color High This color is used for the highest value of the set
Sharing Set who can see your data (nobody by default)
External Data An optional url to e.g. a google sheet

Individual color mode

Will color each distinct value or label with an own color. If a label and a value were entered the vlaue will be used for selecting a color automatically.

Linear and Logarithmic color modes

Only numeric values can be colored using these modes. The lowest and highest value's colors can be set via the set's details. Other value's colors get interpolated. To understand how those modes' results look like it is best to enter some values and switch the modes. Use like 1, 2 ,3 ,4 ,5 ,10 ,20 ,50 ,1000, 5000 for seeing the difference easily.

Color Settings

The three sliders will set Hue, Saturation and Lightness of the color used.

Low and high values

Lowest and highest values are chosen globally at the moment = If the highest or lowest values for that set are on another map those values will still be used for coloring. If you would like a mode where low and high are calculated from the displayed systems only let me know (use the feedback forum please).

Map ownership

Currently a map is owned by the user that created it originally. Also only that user can edit the map.

Adding Data

To add data you need to load a regional map. Opening a database set's details will show all systems on that map in a table. Edit the data and watch the map display it right away. With the details open clicking a system will sort that system to top of the list and put the cursor in the value's input field to edit right away. To bring up the normal solarsystem menu you can double-click it.

Data Display

When opening a set's details the display options Node and Label will get activated automatically. You can display your data via Sectors or Tags aswell. Please select them via the data displays menu.

Sharing maps

Choose to share your map-data with your share-group or publically.

External Data

You can feed external data to eveeye by pasting an url to a JSON array, CSV or plain text file. If you are using this feature you won't be able to edit data within eveeye.

Data

The data file has to contain the following keys:

key description type max
ss solarsystem name or id string or numeric -
lbl label string or numeric 30 chars
val value string or numeric 6 chars

Either a label or value should be present with a solarsystem.

JSON Example

[{"ss":30004738,"val":1},{"ss":"Shenda","lbl":"Hello, "},{"ss":30004271,"lbl":"3","val":"World"}]

CSV / TXT Example

30004738,,1
Shenda,"Hello, "
30004271,3,World

Google Sheets

You for example could use Google Sheets to maintain the data. Using File > Publish to the web you can get the url to paste into the External data field:
