I'm looking for a complete skill tree, preferably with a mouseover/link/etc. that shows the details of each skill. The certification planner is somewhat helpful, but I'm looking for something a little more "big picture".

What did you want a skill tree for? The skill tree in EVE is very flat and broad. – Task Aug 9 '10 at 14:54
Certifications focus on fairly small groups of skills and don't make the overlap between different areas very clear. I feel that a complete skill tree would be better for "big picture" long-term planning. For example, finding different "jobs" or skill groups that share skills, in the short and long term. This seems pretty vital since getting skills past level 3 or so can take days or weeks. – sjohnston Aug 9 '10 at 19:51
What overlap between which different areas? For any given task, there's a small number of related skills. The relation is shown in certifications. There is no 'bigger picture' here. Do you have a single example of what you're talking about? /me Confused! – Task Aug 11 '10 at 17:18
I think the relationship you are looking for, outside of certificates, is the "recommended" tab on ships and modules which points you to groups of certificates. – Kevin Peno Apr 21 '11 at 20:59

EveMon has a pretty good skill tree in it, but it's hard to see everything at once. I don't think I've seen a "complete skill tree" anywhere. But I haven't looked too hard.

I haven't seen them any better than in EveMon. The problem is that there are so many skills and dependencies. I think putting all of that into one picture would be too confusing anyway. – Kempeth Aug 9 '10 at 8:35
I think i already saw a full tree... But i does remember it looking more like a blob... i'll try to find the link =) – Lysarion Mar 1 '11 at 8:24
I found it! But i hope you have a extremely large screen... (not sure it's totally up to date, though...) (EDIT: it's not up to date... no PI skills, still the learning skills... i'll try to look for a recent version) – Lysarion Aug 19 '11 at 12:12
