A 24 and 70 Micron Survey of the Inner Galactic Disk with MIPS (MIPSGAL) Data Collection Atlas
This interface provides access to data from the third delivery (Version 3.0
) of the Spitzer Space Telescope "A 24 and 70 Micron Survey of the Inner Galactic Disk with MIPS" (MIPSGAL
) Legacy Project
. The data are also available as Enhanced Products
from the Spitzer Science Center (SSC
MIPSGAL is a survey of the inner 248 square degrees of the Galactic plane at 24 and 70 microns using the MIPS instrument aboard the Spitzer Space Telescope. The survey covers Galactic latitudes of -1° < b < +1° for Galactic longitudes of l < 62° and l > 298°.
Version 3.0 of the MIPSGAL data includes mosaics only at 24um, but covering the entire survey region. |b| < 1° is covered for -68° < l < 69°, and |b| < 3° is covered for -8° < l < 9°. For each tile position, there are 4 FITS files: the 24µm image, a corresponding standard deviation mosaic, mask cube, and coverage map indicating the number of MIPS pixels that comprise the data going into each mosaic pixel.
Also available are 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.
