Local Volume Legacy Survey (LVL) Overview
LVL Overview LVL Primary Data Access LVL Galaxy Summaries


The Local Volume Legacy Survey (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.
