My two sectors are growing to nine sectors, so I have the borderlands worked out. Inkscape now refuses to export the entire drawing presumably on account that it's too big. Ah well.

Edit - I see from your web site you're a Unix/Mac user? Me too, but initial StarBase development predates my adoption of the Mac. It's written using PySide, a Python wrapper of the Qt library, and I've never quite got it working properly on the Mac. However the source runs perfectly well on Linux once you have the PySide and other required packages installed. If you need a hand getting it working, please get in touch.
Was this addressed at me?
I use everything, really, and as a consequence have become completely multi-platform. Actually, I think I saw Starbase and for some reason I decided not to look at it in depth, just for the life of me can't recall why.
Looks actually quite interesting, especially with the custom rules. Need to check further. It handles multiple sectors from what I can see? Would it be tons of work to add SVG export?
That's pretty nifty. Thanks. I don't own Pocket Empires, but might pick it up some day. Will definitely look into using travellermap.com though, that does make a lot of sense.

here is one subsector:
Impressive, you are a more patient man than I am. I tried to set something up in OpenOffice and pretty much immediately decided that real scripting was easier for me (shell wrapper around AWK in my case).
Thanks for the feedback guys, nice to see how everybody is coping with this.
