Stellar cartography was the science and practice of making maps and projections of space. The United Federation of Planets and other spacefaring cultures had various different systems to organize and catalog space and objects in space. One who specialized in this science was known as a stellar cartographer.

United Federation of Planets, et al.Edit

The most widely used cartographic system was based on older Earth and Vulcan systems, and perhaps ones even older than those.(citation needededit) It divided the galaxy into quadrants, sectors, and systems, and used coordinates to describe specific points in space.(citation needededit)

After posing as stellar cartographers in September 2152, the three Takret deserters Rellus Tagrim, Renth, and Guri had to admit that they have no knowledge of stellar cartography after being exposed by Doctor Phlox. (ENT: "The Catwalk")

Borg CollectiveEdit

The Borg Collective implemented a strictly numerical system to designate regions of space.(citation needededit)

The largest known Borg spatial subdivision was the matrix. A matrix was subdivided into grids.(citation needededit) One grid could be further divided into several octants, which were numbered and sometimes given an alphabetical suffix (such as octant 22-theta). Specific objects like galactic clusters were also numbered by the Borg.(citation needededit)
