IGA Data Atlas
You can get a close-up map of a region by clicking on any area in red on the above image, or by typing a coordinate below.
The IRAS Galaxy Atlas (IGA) is a high resolution image atlas of the Galactic plane at 60 and 100 microns, it has been produced using the IRAS satellite data. The HIRES program was developed by the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) to produce high resolution (~ 1 arcmin) images from IRAS data using the Maximum Correlation Method (H.H. Aumann, J.W. Fowler and M. Melnyk, 1990, Astronomical Journal, 99, 1674).
Associated with the IGA Data Atlas are The Extended IRAS Galaxy Atlas (EIGA) and Mid-Infrared Galaxy Atlas (MIGA), which are both servered from IPAC. Additional to the image search, the IRAS point source catalog is queried for this location and resultant point source information is presented visually and in tabular format within the results page. Also available are IGA image "cutouts" using IRSA's Cutouts Service, which is a general tool to create single or multiple small FITS (and JPEGs) image cutouts of datasets archived at IRSA.
Images are represented in red as overlays on the ISSA all-sky image above. Use the Quick Search below to get data for an entire field, or type in a coordinate or click on any red region to get a close-up of the area; the size of the search is adjustable.
