I am trying to understand the geometry of the hex-based world map in SPG2.

I assume that the numbers describing positions in world, region and sector files correspond to the distance measurements used in-game, showing for instance the distance to your current waypoint.

Unfortunately I have not been able to find indications in these files for the width and height of a sector hexagon.

By comparing positions of objects that appear to be near the same location of their sectors I have approximated the horizontal width at the widest part of a sector hexagon to be 8775-8825 units and the vertical height of a sector to be 7625-7675 units.

However, approximations are of limited use to me – it would be great to have the actual numbers.

Any of you guys come across this information?
