I wanted to ask an open ended question whose answer will be entirely subjective. But I think the question and answer would be beneficial to the site. This is technically something that should be flagged to be closed.
"What are mapping or diagramming techniques that would be valuable to someone mapping a solar system?"
Basically, it's a question about creating maps or diagrams. I've seen number of different approaches taken and each of these has provided unique insight into various aspects of interplanetary travel. I wanted to see if there are other perspectives that I haven't seen that might prove to be equally valuable.
How would I ask such a question without getting it closed or am I stuck doing my own research?
It might be impossible to select a "best" answer but that doesn't mean there couldn't be many very good ones.
