Data Processing for the Spitzer GLIMPSE Surveys
American Astronomical Society, AAS Meeting #222, id.313.05
Published in Jun 2013
The GLIMPSE and additional surveys observed the full 360 degrees of longitude of the Galactic Plane with a width that ranged from 2-9 degrees in latitude using the Spitzer Space Telescope. Some regions of the survey include Spitzer MIPS 24 micron as well as the 4 IRAC bands (3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8 microns), while others were only observed in 3.6 and 4.5 microns during the “warm mission.” Here we tabulate and describe the different surveys and observing modes that were processed by the GLIMPSE team. We describe the data products (point source lists and cleaned mosaic images) and how to get the data.
