Materials - Three D Constellations

Information on the Ursa Major and other constellations can be found at The Constellations and their Stars.

You can find RA and Dec, as well as parallax for those stars for which it is known, at the Simbad Astronomical Database.

The Astronomical Coordinates Calculator can help you convert astronomical coordinates to cartesian coordinates.

While primarily designed for running galactic dynamics and planetary dynamics models, GalaxSee may also be used as a tool for 3-D visualization, by simply loading the system and visualizing it without running the model.
