Galactic Legacy Infrared Midplane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE)
GLIMPSE Overview GLIMPSE Primary Data Access GLIMPSE Cutouts IRSA Catalog Search Tool: GLIMPSE

Overview

Spitzer data from a number of programs covering the Galactic Plane are available here. These programs include the original "Galactic Legacy Infrared Midplane Survey Extraordinaire" (GLIMPSE) Legacy Program, as well as its extensions: GLIMPSE II, GLIMPSE 3D, GLIMPSE 360, Deep GLIMPSE, Vela-Carina, and GLIMPSE Proper. In addition, the GLIMPSE team has processed the data from the "Spitzer Mapping of the Outer Galaxy" (SMOG) and "A Spitzer Legacy Survey of the Cygnus-X Complex" (Cygnus-X) Legacy Programs. If you use GLIMPSE data, please cite Benjamin et al. (2003) and Churchwell et al. (2009).
