The IRAS galactic plane atlas contains high resolution (~1 arcmin) imagery of the galactic plane and regions in Orion, Taurus-Auriga, and around rho Ophiuchus at 60 and 100 microns. Specifying locations outside these regions will result in an error message.

The galactic plane data is in the regions -4.7 to +4.7 degrees galactic latitude and the other regions covered are roughly as follows (the regions have somewhat irregular edges):

Region RA Dec
  77 -  93 
 -13 - +18 
  55 -  78 
 +12 - +38 
rho Ophiuchus
 233 - 256 
 -33 - -17 

Besides the GIF image that will be returned you will also have access to the original FITS data, PostScript overlay files and source tables for the region.
