ESA Planck Legacy Archive

The ESA Planck Legacy Archive provides an alternate way to access Data Products from the Planck mission. Note there are some differences in certain data products available at ESA. Specifically, ESA serves the following:
1. LFI frequency maps v2.01 have updated headers compared to the v2.0 ones served here but their data content is identical.
2. HFI time ordered information at 143, 217, 353, 545, and 857 GHz is accessible.
3. LFI pointing files are v2.1 and have an updated sign convention (0 to 2*π).
These and other Planck products are continously being generated and will be served at IRSA as an update in the near future.
