HereBeDragons is a data API for the World of Warcraft mapping system

HereBeDragons offers a clean and modern API to retrieve the players position, calculate distances and angles between positions, both in global world coordinates and local zone coordinates. The primary goal of this library is to provide an up-to-date and low maintenance alternative to the legacy map libraries like Astrolabe and LibMapData, which both unfortunately are unmaintained and have their own issues due to changes in WoWs API.

On top of a clean API for all map math, HereBeDragons also provides a second library, HereBeDragons-Pins, which replaces the world map and minimap pin management functionality of Astrolabe. This library is roughly based on the pin management code from GatherMate2, which has been thoroughly tested in years of use.
