I know at least one person downloaded all the Traveller Map data and loaded it into a SQL database. I keep thinking I want to do the same thing, but not gotten around to it.
That may have been me. It took a little while to work it out, but works well now.

I wrote a Perl script that proxies Travellermap data into the format I want.

It's nerdy, but fun.
