Planck Public Data Release 3 Mission Ancillary Data

This page contains cosmological parameters, likelihoods, power spectra, noise covariance matrices, polarization leakage corrections maps, beams, instrument models, mask files, planet intensities and dates on which positions on the sky were observed. In addition, a listing of all PR3 data products is provided. Planck mission products and the observation date files are described in the resources listed on the Planck documentation page.

A description of the HEALPix map format and a suite of software tools are available at the HEALPix site, http://healpix.sourceforge.net.

Effective Beams S. Mitra et al. 2011. Fast Pixel Space Convolution for Cosmic Microwave Background Surveys with Asymmetric Beams and Complex Scan Strategies: FEBeCop Unformatted Planck effective beams by sky position and frequency for use with EffConv.
These are based on processing the full mission data while those for PR1 were only based on the nominal mission data.
