Planck Public Data Release 2 Mission Ancillary Data

This page contains cosmological parameters, likelihoods, power spectra, noise covariance matrices, polarization leakage corrections maps, beams, instrument models, mask files, planet intensities and dates on which positions on the sky were observed. In addition, a listing of all PR2 data products is provided. Planck mission products and the observation date files are described in the resources listed on the Planck documentation page.

A description of the HEALPix map format and a suite of software tools are available at the HEALPix site, http://healpix.sourceforge.net.
