Spitzer Local Volume Legacy Survey (LVL)
LVL consists of a sample of 258 galaxies, which have been mapped with both IRAC (4 bands) and MIPS (3 bands). In addition, ancillary data products consisting of images in the narrow-band H-alpha line emission and broad-band R (from the ground) and the UV continuum (2 bands) from GALEX are also available for many of the galaxies.
IRSA hosts the complete LVL project data set, comprised of observations for 256 galaxies (see summary pages of observations for each galaxy). The remaining two galaxies in the LVL sample are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
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.
The 256 available LVL galaxies are represented as overlays in red on the all-sky ISSA image above. Use the form below to enter a coordinate or object name to search for data, or click on any red region to get a close-up of the area; or click on the any of the LVL galaxy names for a summary page of each object. Summary pages are created by IRSA to aid with data layout and visualization; these pages contain previews and links to all files provided by LVL for that object.
