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. As of July 2016, 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, and Vela-Carina. 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).
