MIGA 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 Mid-Infrared Galaxy Atlas (MIGA) is a high resolution image atlas of the Galactic plane at 12 µm and 25 µm; it has been produced using the HIRES processed infrared data from the IRAS satellite. It is a counterpart to the far-infrared IRAS Galaxy Atlas (IGA) and the Extended IRAS Galaxy Atlas (EIGA). Also available are MIGA 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.
