MIPS Local Galaxies Data
The MIPS Local Galaxies program compiles the Spitzer MIPS observations of all available galaxies in several Herschel-SPIRE Local Galaxies Guaranteed Time Programs, including the Very Nearby Galaxies Survey (VNGS), Dwarf Galaxy Survey (DGS), Herschel Reference Survey (HRS), and Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey (HeViCS). MIPS 24, 70, and 160 micron images are available here using spatial and visualization tools.
You can get a close-up map of a region by clicking on any of the red overlays on the above image, or by typing a coordinate below.
Use the form below to enter a coordinate or object name to search for data, or click the image above to retrieve cutout images for your area of interest (along with links to the original mosaics). MIPS Local Galaxies catalog data are available using IRSA's Catalog Search Engine, which allows for complex search queries.
The canonical paper for this data set is Bendo et al. (2012).
