IRIS Data Collection Atlas
You can get a close-up map of a region by selecting a point in red on the above image, or by typing a coordinate below.
This new generation of IRAS images, called IRIS, benefits from better zodiacal light subtraction, calibration and zero levels compatible with DIRBE, and better destriping. At 100 microns, the IRIS product is also a significant improvement over the Schlegel et al. (1998) maps. IRIS keeps the full ISSA resolution, includes well calibrated point sources, and the diffuse emission calibration at scales smaller than 1 degree was corrected for the variation of the IRAS detector responsivity with scale and brightness. The uncertainty on the IRIS calibration and zero levels is dominated by the uncertainty of the DIRBE calibration and the accuracy of the zodiacal light model.
IRIS includes co-added maps (H0) as well as maps from each individual survey (H1, H2, H3).
Also available are IRIS 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.
IRIS images are represented as overlays in red on the IRSA all-sky composite image above. Either 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.
