SkyMap Pro offers the very useful capability of being able to use "external data catalogs", allowing you to add your own data to the program. This page contains a collection of data catalogs which have been generously contributed by SkyMap Pro users. If you've created or come across a data catalog which you feel would be of interest to other users, and you'd like to contribute it to this library, please send e-mail to email@example.com for instruction about how to do so. Before doing so, please ensure that the catalog is freely distributable!
Each of the catalogs in the library is supplied in the form of a "zip" file containing the catalog itself, any accompanying documentation, and the "SkyMap Data Definition" (.sdd) file which "describes" the layout of the data to SkyMap Pro. To use any of these catalogs, proceed as follows:
For each catalog, the following information is listed:
Note: Catalogs marked with a "(*)" required SkyMap Pro 6 or later to use. All the other catalogs can be used with SkyMap Pro 5.
