EDSM (Elite:Dangerous Star Map) started as a side project, our first aim was to calculate coordinates of Elite: Dangerous' systems. Since then, I constantly added new features into the website and our API.

We now provide flight log syncing, profile page, fleet tracking, note tracking and much more things!

EDSM now serves an average of 40 millions pages a month, and store around 80 thousands new flight logs entries per day.

All these features take a lot of time to develop and maintain, the side project has grown to be almost a full time job.
I usually work as a freelance, but helping me having a complementary income, would greatly improve the time I can spend on EDSM.

We know that Frontier Development has at least a 10 years plan for the Elite: Dangerous game, so EDSM should grow for at least that number of years too. Resources needed to maintain it to the level of features and speed you always add will grow other time.

I always tried to be transparent about donations and to use them only to pay for the EDSM infrastructure, keeping the ads out of the website for our members and keep them to a minimum.

The truth is that I would prefer spend most of my time giving you new extraordinary features! And only you can help with that.
if every member currently using EDSM on a regular basis just give 1$ per month, our goals will be more than fulfill.

i wish you all a merry Christmas, and we see you next year for new coming features.
