What is a CHV file?
Data file created by ChView, a program used for browsing interactive star maps; stores the locations of stars in a 3D space and can also contain connectors between the stars; also includes star properties such as the name, constellation, spectra, mass, and other information; used for saving and sharing star maps.
ChView star maps may reflect current or futuristic data. For example, both real-world sky constellations as well as star maps of futuristic interstellar colonization scenarios have been created.
