There are many maps of the Star Wars Galaxy floating around. One thing I like about them is that they show the entire galaxy was not controlled by the Empire and that even a large portion of the galaxy was still uncharted.

In The Force Awakens we see two major factions (Resistance/New Republic and First Order). The New Republic was formed once the iron fist of the Empire was broken. The First Order is the reformation of the remnants of the Empire.

I was wondering if there was a new map released that shows what parts of the Galaxy each faction controls now?

Yes. The following map appears in the Force Awakens: Visual Dictionary.

It doesn't, however contain the sort of granular political detail that would make it useful for your purposes

    @Skooba - Yeah, it's not exactly Star Wars: The Essential Atlas, is it?

    Tatooine is right next to Geonosis?! Commented May 18, 2016 at 16:05

    I'm trying to figure out why the route from Naboo to Coruscant from TPM made Tatooine a good stopping point for repairs. Commented May 18, 2016 at 16:27

A map of the galaxy is shown in The Force Awakens.

I'm not sure if the First Order/New Republic divide is shown, though.

    Ah, I have watched the movie a few times now and did not even realize it was the whole galaxy... i thought it was just a piece and BB-8 had a piece of the piece!

  • While this is in the movie, there doesn't seem to be any information you can actually glean from it other than perhaps that Luke is in the mid or outer rim.

    @Skooba - While that's a good way to make sense of it IMHO, there's a pretty clear spiral in the middle of it, strongly implying this is showing the entirety of some kind of spiral supersystem. I'm not aware of anything smaller than a galaxy ever being shown to have a spiral organization. So that map would have to encompass an entire galaxy at a minimum.
